Did you try the VGA port on your motherboard? maybe the BIOS isn't configured to detect your HDMI or VGA port in your GPU, it may be using the onboard GPU, that would be a cause for no display and everything working

it SHOULD, every mobo has one, every i know of, are you SURE there is none VGA port that leads directly to your motherboard at the back of the case?

If you can get your PC checked by someone professional...please do because the fact that your mobo doesn't have integrated graphics it is kinda weird, it SHOULD detect the GPU when you connect it right away, have you tried via VGA cable from the GPU to the screen?

LOL yeah your MB has no integrated graphics so troubleshooting this will require another GPU (not the one you just bought).

Take R9 270x GPU out.

Install another PCIE GPU that you know works (use one from an older computer or ask your friends). Power on.

If it works than your R9 is faulty. If it doesn't work than your motherboard is faulty.

I had the same problem with my sapphire r9 270X. System would power on, no beeps, fans turning but nothing on screen. Was the GPU. Got a replacement no problems and works great since.

This is super weird though...faulty GPUs aren't something THAT common, my guess is that maaaaybe, if the driver is not installed, there may be problems when detecting the hdmi port...now this is a crazy asumption, and i am probably wrong, he SHOULD be getting a display, considering his mobo doesn't have onboard graphics it should be configured to detect the PCIe port from the beginning....

Yeah I think you are on the money. My display came up through the port on the GPU as soon as I slotted it into the PCI-e. That was with a MB with integrated graphics / video output. I'd imagine this guys MB should be displaying through the GPU as soon as it is in the PCIe too. So I really can't see it being anything other than a GPU or MB problem. He's got more than enough power supply to the system.

í am out of ideas...you already swapped cables, everything spins...tried another GPU? if you try another one and it works then the GPU is faulty, also i suppose you tried different screens right?

yes i tried diffrent cablse,hdmi,and dvi, i tried my moitor but its works because i use it every day so i dont see why it would work i havent tried new gpu cause i dont jae one lying around and it would take uo to a week for a friend to ome with their gpu
i might consider take it to a computer repair store

If you can get them to simply test another GPU in your PC then it would be great, if it works then the GPU is faulty, if that's the case you don't need to repair it these things have warranty, i don't know how online stores work with that though, but if it came bad they legally have to replace it, if it doesn't work with another GPU, then probably the motherboard is faulty and your PC should be tested on another motherboard, this could even reduce to a silly configuration error made on the MB BIOS, since the thing doesn't have onboard graphics, to immediately recognize the PCIe port...whatever the outcome please share we are all learning here

yea what im trying to do is get a proffesional to take a look and maybe fix it

Check you have the GPU in PCIe slot 1. Check both CPU and main power is connected on mobo. Disconnect the fans and drives. Power on you system, how far do you get? any display? what lights flash/stay lit on the mobo?

yes gpu is in 1st pci slot,cpu and main power is connected,i disconnected fans and drives,i turn it on works like always,no display,the only thing that flases is mobo light that indicates its on and also when i click the MemOk button on motherboard for ram it starts flashing and also when i turn on or turn off pc the cpu light flashes red once

If ya guys have any last recommendations that would be great.before I go to this computer store where they can inspect pc for 30$ and see what's problems and tell me what I can do or I could test 1 single piece of hardware for 20$

It's gotta be a mobo or gpu problem. Did you buy your mobo from a shop? If so best you take it down there with your proof of purchase and they'll be able to confirm if it is the mobo or not. If it turns out the mobo works fine then you can send your gpu for a swap to wherever you got it online.

sorry I haven't been able to help you more.

I got the motherboard online and it would be a lot of hastlle and lots and lots of time.So I think my best bet is to take it to store get it checked out.And whatever the problem is I will sell it and buy new one.I will let you guys know what's the problems is when I get it Chevked out.Thanks everyone
