I have an nvidia geforce 8400 gs video card , and i decided to upgrade it to an sapphire hd 7770 (Ghz OC edition). I know i connected everything right (including 6 pin connector) because when i power on the PC the video card gets power (Fan spins). The pc itself boots up nicely with no errors. but i get no display(no bios display or anything). I am posting this thread with my old card(nvidia geforce 8400 gs).

Facts: Video card reccomends 450 watt psu. MY PSU = 500 watts

No errors when PC powers on.

Cant get into BIOS

Ram is enough 6 GB Ballistix

CPU Pentium 4 duo @2.60 (Temporary)

Tested with two analog and digital LCD's

OLD VIDEO CARD WORKS PERFECT THOUGH

Check the BIOS (using old video card) for an option to disable onboard graphics or set the PCI-e as primary display

What motherboard do you have? check chip and some additional info for example with 'cpu-z' app with your old geforce.

Try to plug this card on other computer, it looks like it's broken/damaged. I had similar issues with hd6670, fan was spinning, no bios errror beeps and do display on monitor.
