Is your computer starting at all?
or is it just no display on the monitor?
Try it in your first computer (your first computer is a desktop right?), if it works then you know something is wrong with the second build (most likely the power supply is not working correctly).,if it doesn't, then you know it is the card.
With problems like these, its always good to troubleshoot before immediately declaring the dreaded "DOA".
My computer starts up fine, no problem. It has a clean HDD in it so I don't have an operation system yet.
My other computer is a laptop, I can only test to see if the monitor works, and it does.
I start up the computer, and the monitor just says (NO SIGNAL), then just a blank screen. Though, if I have the monitor already on (blank screen) and then turn on the computer, the monitor senses something because all of a sudden it says (NO SIGNAL), but then goes away to a blank screen.
I dont' really have anything to test it with. Is it possible that I didn't have the video card completely in the PCI express slot and it shorted or something? I watched videos and read about video card installation, and if doesn't seem like it should be this difficult.
Is there anything that I need to do to the motherboard, I have 3 PCI e slots, I have the video card in the #1 slot.
I've looked all over for a compatibility list btw the video cards and motherboard, but haven't been able to find one. I don't want to send it back and get a replacement just to find out that the motherboard doesn't like this card.
