Hi all! I'm noob here. Came across this site on google trying to find some help.
I was just putting together my new PC by myself. Here my h/w
Asus P5N-E SLI mobo
ocz 2x1gig ram
Intel E6750 cpu
So i connected everything correctly (i think). my monitor has DVI cable and the older fashion cable (Dup or something?) But I coludn't find the DVI cable so i went with the (Dup?) since the card has a Dup to DVI connector. As soon as I powered up the computer, everything looks fine, cpu heatsink, case fan, 8600gt fan, all running. But there is no display on the screen. It says "Searching for a source signal" and just keep flashing the power LED on the monitor. What can possibly be happening here and how may I fix this? The mon works okay with my older computer with the (Dup) connecting video card.
Please give me some suggestions. I don't know what to do now. Thanks!
PS: You know those cables from the PSU that connects to the mobo to give it power? I have connected that 24pin plug and the other 12V little plug. But I see two extra PCI-E power plugs. I do'nt know if I should plug them on the mobo somewhere. Will this be the problem? The 8600 fan is spinning tho...
Yes, the card goes firmly into the PCI-E slot (black slot). The PCI-E power connector on the video card is also black in most cases. Its small and has four pins. The card should have come with a power connector. Take a look at the manual that came with the card, it might help.
