I've just completed a new build yesterday and I hit a road block. When trying to first start my system I got a message on screen that "DVI signal not found". Everything seems to work out fine (Graphic card lit up and the fans are all rolling). I have tried the monitor on another computer before that and the monitor with the same DVI cable was working fine.
Is it my PSU that doesn't give enough power?
Is my graphic card busted?
Here is the build, as far as hard drive, I have 2 SSD now showing on this list :
I think my mobo is busted. Technically I have tried every component on my second computer. I made my card work out when pluggued in the PCIeX8 instead of the PCIeX16 slot. That is weird, everything is fine. I have updated all my hardware drivers but it dtill doesn't work on the PCIe16, therefore, just not to feel the pain of taking everything out and getting my mobo replaced, I will keep my card in the X8 slot... Will it make a big difference? Should I take my mobo back to the shop?
Check the integrated graphics output is nit activated, quite a few share pcie lanes with the first slot, most graphics cards barely use pcie 2 at 8x speed so the card would work fine but check the integrated graphics.
I have disable integrated graphic from BIOS. My card works ok in the PCIe 8X Slot, but still, on the PCIe 16X slots I have no luck and the message on screen will be no DVI signals. I'm wondering if this is a Graphic cards problem or my PCIe 16X slot on the mobo that is busted. Anyway to verify this beside the obvious of pluggin in another video card?
