I have a MSI B85-G41 Pc Mate mobo and a ASUS gtx 760 graphics card .I can use the integrated graphics and get a video signal without the graphics card put in, but when I put in the graphics card, I no longer get a video signal coming out of any of the ports.

Would appreciate any help, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

wow, somebody with a halfway decent ps. that's a rarity around here.

you did hook the power adapters to the video card? ( 6 0r 8pin pci-e wires from the power supply )

the monitor cable is hooked to the back of the card?

in the BIOS you did disable the on board or make the graphics point to PEG/pci-e or set it to auto?

I've got the 6+2 PCI-e cable from the PSU connected to the GPU and the led does light up and when I boot the machine, the fans do start spinning
I've tried the cable in both the GPU ports and motherboard ports whilst the GPU is connected and none of them provide a signal
I haven't changed any of the graphics settings in the BIOS, I did not think you had to, wouldn't it work automatically should you just put in the GPU?

it should, but it doesn't always. card is firmly seated?

also, try the other pci-e slot. ................ and also look in the BIOS to see if the slots are assigned.

I've tried it in the other pci-e slot and it still won't give me a video signal

What do you mean when you ask if the slots are assigned?

back in the old days you had to pick first slot/second slot................. but also want to know if peg/pci-e/auto is set up or if the on board is disabled.

I update the BIOS to the latest after it didn't work off the bat, I've poked around the internet a bit trying to find a fix, no luck though

the card also requires 38amps by itself. your ps delivers 44..........?? what can you disable (unplug ) ( AND DISABLE IN BIOS ) to provide more power so the machine might boot with the card? also only run 1 stick of ram.

Nope, still not working.
I disconnected the case fans, all the LEDs connected to the case and removed one stick of RAM, still not working.

I did some reading on the card. lots, and for a video card, I mean lots of people have bad experiences with the card not working or only working for a very short time. you might want to look into that....??? and I say this because nothing should have been this hard to try and figure out... afa graphics cards........... they usually are plug and play - no muss no fuss.
