Asus Maximus VI Gene Problem?

I'm have troubles getting the computer to show an Input video on the monitor, the GPU seems to be fine.

Could this mean there is a problem?

--I assume this is the motherboard because when I turn on the Computer, I get a quick flash from my keyboard and Mouse LED lights, it seems to be like they are quickly turning off and on.--

Everything seems to be installed correctly, the HDD turns on, Case fans on, Motherboard lights on(0.0), GPU fans and lights on, CPU installed correctly. The only thing I can imagine is the Ram is in the incorrect spot. Which I put in the 2 black slots furthest away from the CPU Unit(which I've seen people do this before, so I don't think its a problem.

This is my 3rd time assembling a PC, so I'm pretty sure I installed the basics correctly

System Specs:

i7 4790K
Zotac GTX 970 AMP
8GB of Kingston Hyper X
750 Watt by Corsair(the New 970 and i7 draw very little power, so a 750 watt should be good enough)

Thanks

  1. I hope you didn't ignore the additional GPU power inputs on the card and chip-set power connectors.
  2. Is it giving a hardware error, like beep codes, or does it sound like it's posting fine and not showing the screen?

    Did you check that the monitor is working correctly, cables are working?

    Can you use the imagine I provided of the Motherboard and show me actually what I could be missing. The card requires 2x8 Pin connects, I connected them 2x6+2 Pin connectors.

    Which "card" are you talking about? the motherboard or the graphics card? You need to make sure you have both power cables going to the motherboard for the pc to boot, and additional power to the graphics card(s) that require additional power.

    I check the TV and New monitor. Both didn't seem to display anything.

    I get no beeps.

    Hardware and fans are coming on?

    Check the RAM, even pull all of it out, and put in only one stick.

    If it has onboard video, try that and not the card. Change the bios settings to boot from PCIe first, shut down, and put the card back in.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    I installed 2x 8 Pins for the GPU, and 1x8 Pin and 1x24 on the Motherboard.

    It should, that chip supports an Intel HDsomething

    I believe that's a HDMI, between the USB 3.0 ports. At the bottom.

  12. poor old asus sure do get a lot of issue threads around here I guess that's why there the best ??

    if your trying to use a hdmi to hdmi cable that can be a trick and may need driver support to work properly go from the cards dvi port to what ever to the monitor

  16. I don't know how that would do [vga] ... is it like the monitor is vga and you used a dvi adaptor ??? I use that and its fine for this old crt but for my hdtv I found the dvi-card to hdmi-hdtv worked 100% fine for that
  17. Here is a video of the rig.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TQ1lgREM-M&list=UUgyozjnyG5vCJ1P9yQurSsg

    We used a Female - Female VGA - DVI adapter.
  18. ok [nice rig] this is what you may need and after my 3 trips to walmart for hdmi to hdmi cables I ended up with something like this and everything worked for my 46'' hdtv where all else had failed

    be sure you read your hdtv manual on pc hook up cause it may only except the one input eaven thoughn it has all the ones on it

  19. Do you have another monitor?

    Try one stick of RAM in different spots. Don't do what "other people do", do what the motherboard's manual tells you. It should say specifically which slots.
