NEED Help with BAD VIDEO CARD!!!

Recently I built a Gaming rig, and I think my video card may be bad. The card is an EVGA GTX 275.

It's installed correctly. I put it into the first PCIE slot, screwed it into the clips, plugged in the 2 six-pin connectors(for power), and turned the PC on. I can't even boot into the bios or anything. I get a message from the monitor saying "NO SIGNAL FOUND", which means the monitor isn't detecting the video card.

By the way, I'm using the VGA to DVI adapter, if that makes any difference whatsoever.


SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME SUGGESTIONS?

IS THE VIDEO CARD BAD?

SHOULD I RMA?

  1. Clear the bios.
  2. If the system is not even getting to BIOS there is something badly wrong.
    First: Which power supply do you have?.
    Second: Does it still work with the old card or onboard video ?
