I cannot get my Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ti to work

Hi, I bought a Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ti a few weeks back to replace my old one, but nothing I do can get it to work.

The card sits nicely in the PCI slot, but after I connect it to the PSU and switch it on, all I get is a black screen on my monitor. Everything else seems to be running – the power comes on, the case fans are running, etc. The monitor however stays black even though the LED lights up to show that the power is on.

Inside, while it is running, I notice that neither of the two fans are running. Do I need a more powerful PSU? I recently installed a 600W OCZ PSU, and that has worked fine.

Or is it a motherboard issue? It is quite old, but I'm not sure how that could be the issue.

Here is my set up (excluding sound card, wireless, etc):

Motherboard: Asrock ALiveSATA2-GLAN
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 2.20 Ghz
PSU: OCZ 600W Mod Xstream-Pro

Thanks.

Noob question but did you connected the gpu with the pci-e cables from your psu ¿?

I had to attach two cables that came with the GPU to the PSU, and they fit okay. There was one extra red cable that had PCI-E written on it, but there were two outputs and I just used the two black ones. Should I have used the red one?

600w are more than enough...however it may be some problem with the PSU or the card...it is clearly not get power...

The PSU is powering everything else fine. Maybe the card is a dud?

Have you got a spare card or a friend who can lend you a card to try because to me that is the problem, of course it can be the MotherBoard / PCIe slot........but the fan doesn't spin it makes me think of the cards definitely....

You mean a spare GTX 560? No, I only bought the one, and I don't know anyone one else who owns one. So I guess it's looking like the card itself as the problem?

No any other PCIe card.....if another card works then ti can't be the slot.....and if the PSU works ok then it has to be the graphic card you bought...

I'm currently using my old graphics card, and it works fine. So it must be the new card that's the problem?

Yes , if your old one is wrking it has to be the gpu despite the psu is working correctly and has enough power.
