My Monitor doesn't work after installing my new graphics card, what do I do?

Like a lot of people that I've found on the internet the monitor works when the GPU isn't plugged in. When the GPU's plugged the fan spins and everything looks to be working fine but its just the monitor.

I've tried uninstalling the old driver but it didn't work, I've also tried changing the PCI-E settings in the bios but I get the same result, I think that the bios needs updating but I can't find an update anywhere.

GPU - EVGA SC GTX 750TI
CPU - Intel core i7 2600
PSU - Corsair CX500
Motherboard - Foxconn n15235

Help would be appreciated.

  1. To clarify the details:

    With the video card installed...
    > When you connect the monitor to the integrated graphics, does it work?
    > When you connect the monitor to the new video card, does it work?

    When the video card is not installed (removed)...
    > When you connect the monitor to the integrated graphics, does it work?
    > When you connect the monitor to the new video card, does it work?


    Have you tried disabling onboard graphics in the BIOS and enabling the PCI Express graphics?

    During the times when the monitor does not work, if you wait long enough, can you hear Windows boot up (it makes the startup sound)?

    Yes, VERY much so. A computer will boot without a monitor connected. The key thing I want to find out is: is the computer not even turning on at all ... or is the computer running correctly, but just not getting a video signal sent to the monitor.

    Re read the thing.
    If you have a graphics card just sitting on your desk and you connect a monitor cable to it, how in the world is it supposed to do anything at all?
  5. I copied and pasted, and didn't think about that; sorry. Yeah, it can't be installed and not installed at the same time:); so that one definitely makes no sense.
