First time new build. Everything is hooked up. All fans turn on @ powerup EXCEPT my graphics card. AND I have no display on monitor, not even a screen flicker. SHOULD my graphics card fan turn on @ powerup or not? I'll ship it back if I think its DOA.
When ever you turn the computer on, it should beep, which tells you, one beep is usually means everything works, 1 long beep or a couple short beeps and one long beeps will mean something, or a long beep pause, couple short beeps pause 1 long beep. Do you get anything like that. On my motherboard i get post codes which there is a box that shows a number if there is a problem like for instance :
9a or 8B.
Make sure the card is fully seated, it`s possible a SATA connector (HDD or optical drive) is interfering with the card and preventing it from going fully home.
The `beep codes` refers to the beeps the computer should make when it is powered on, sometimes the MB has a tiny speaker to make the sounds, but some need to be connected to the case speaker to hear them.
You system should make a single, clear beep when it starts, you`ll need to tell us you MB make and model if it produces any others.
I don't get any beeps. Even with an external speaker hooked up. Card is fully seated. Should the HD 4670 fan turn on @ startup or will it only come on when the card needs it?
