I just built an i7 920, with an Asust P6T, and 2 XFX 4890s. PSU is Corsair 750tx, and the ram is OCZ Platinum.

Computer will fire up, but it will goto a blank screen. No load screen, no nothing. Just a blank screen.

So I took out the 4890, and put in an old 7600gt I had laying around, same thing..

This motherboard does not seem to have a vga out.

Fans, lights and everything pop on.

Have you gone through the entire checklist? The X58 chipset does not have onboard graphics so you will need to have a GPU in there.

I'm not to sure, what else to go through... Everything appears to be working properly, but I just cannot get it to output a display.

Did you plug in the power especially the 8 pin CPU power?
August 5, 2009 9:07:07 PM

yes, everything is plugged in

Basically upon bootup my monitor lists its in a powersave mode, which is weird, because when I plug it into other computers, no such thing.

Plugged both 4890s into my other comp, and they work... so this is a strange one.

Could it be a bad cpu?

Power related. Either the PSU is bad or you didnt plug the 8pin CPU power in.

Could be ram related try with one stick o ram.

This is the checklist mentioned above:

READ before posting about boot problems!

#2 is the most common mistake.

Faulty RAM is also a common cause of your type of symptoms.

That's why people keep asking about the 8-pin CPU power connector and if you've tried with one stick of RAM.

A computer powering on but not displaying video output is very common and the reason the sticky linked above was created. The chances are very good that if you actually perform every step in the checklist you'll find your problem.
