So I just got my MSI Twin Frozr GTX 760 and a new PSU a 600 watt Thermaltake PSU. After I installed the GPU I turned on the computer and the monitor was getting no signal I reseated the ram and GPU could my GPU be faulty or is it not getting enough power? Im currently on the same PC but with my old Nvida GT 620 GPU installed.

PC SPECS with old GPU and PSU:http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume...

Check you have the DVI cable in the correct DVI socket (Assuming you are using DVI). It could be that you have a dud card or that you maybe haven't connected all the cables or perhaps you forgot to uninstall the drivers from your previous card?

Oh I completly forgot I didn't uninstall the old GPU drivers and I am using 1 of the 2 DVI ports by a DVI to VGA adapter

I uninstalled the old drivers sadly no difference could the problem be with the Graphics Card itself?

Try the other DVI port.

That didn't work either so I'm going to RMA and Newegg is going to replace this one with another one I'll update the fourm when i't arrives. Hopefully it's just the GPU itself and nothing with my MoBo or PCI port :) 

Update: So finally got the new gpu and sadly the same results I tried everything I could think of could it be mp computer is too weak for this GPU?

I know its been a while since the original post but for others with this problem currently or in the future, I found one solution. I have a new WIN 8.1 AMD A8 with onboard Radeon in a HP case P7-1534. Upgraded my PSU with EVGA 600B and installed MSI N760 4GB GTX 760. No display on boot. It turns out on HP in BIOS (f10) there is a security feature called secure boot under security menu item. Have to turn off secure boot and turn on legacy. I tried everything before I uncovered this conflict/solution. Volt checked PCIE power cords, PSU etc...was just about to return the card for replacement. Secure Boot Did not appear in any blogs that I came across. I did find this post when I was searching so figured someone else might also look here and see this solution.
