Bad PCI or Bad video card?

Ok So i switch from a Nvidia 580 to a 760. I also moved My MOBO to a new case. when i installed the 770 NO VIDEO. Here are the actions i have taken:


So know I dont know whether both cards are bad or the MOBO PCI slots are toast. I can not get anything on my screen at all. CPU fan is running. GPU fan is running and feels warm.

any advice would be great

    Firstly, you really didn't tell us if you have 760 or 770.
    Secondly, what PSU do you have?
    Also, check your wirings again.
  2. Ok sorry..

    Its the GTX 760 and I am running the corsair 850w Power
  3. Hmm not sure try the 760 in a friends pc to verify if the card is faulty or not?

    and what about the 580 does it gives a display?
  4. Finaly found the problem..So i broke out my PC3 and tried it on my monitor..with yet another HDMI plug...sure enough there is a short in the HDMI plug on the monitor..The plug is in such a tight spot that it causes the HDMI fittins to bind and I guess over time the connection has gone bad.. I got it all back and working...

    So my Tip: Trouble shoot the monitor back to the CPU if you are having similar GPU issues

    Thanks for all the help..
  5. Glad that the wiring were the problem! Have fun.
