Hi,

I recently bought a new rig, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get a display from my new HD 5850.

System specs:

Asus P7H55-V
Core i5 750
4gb Corsair XMS DDR3 RAM
CM 600W silent pro

Things I've tried so far:

1) Updated the bios still no display
2) installed my old 9600GT in new PC and it works
3) The card gives display on retailer's test PC

Any ideas as to why the card refuses to work on my new build? Is it possible that the card doesn't work on my particular mobo?

Thanks for your input.

1) Make sure you have enough amperage on whatever rails your feeding to the card.
2) Make sure you've installed the card in the right slot on the board, some are very finnicky about which one you can use with different configurations.
3) Try using the other DVI port
4) Make sure it's not just the port on you monitor by using another.

Let us know what happens.
