ASUS GTX 480 Image Problem

Im having a problem setting up my new pc i just bought in parts online.
The parts im using are: ASUS GTX 480, EVGA P55 FTW mobo, Intel i5-661 processor and a Corsair TX750w psu.

Now ive set up pcs before so im not a complete noob, yet i cant seem to get the GTX 480 to work properly.
The problem is that i get no image on the monitor whatsoever once i turn the pc on. Now ive checked the psu wiering and it seems that thats not the issue as the fan on the GTX works and the card itself seems to gain some temperature when booting. Ive also tried to replace the GTX 480 with my older 8800GTX card, and that worked perfectly, the monitor led up and displayed the bootsequence so im pretty sure theres nothing wrong with the rest of the system. Im also completly positive that the GTX 480 itself works, as ive checked it in another pc where it worked perfectly. No idea what im doing wrong.

Any help will be greatly appriciated.

  1. Did you try both DVI - ports ?
    If not, sounds like you have troubleshot out a bad card :(
  2. Yep, i did try both DVI ports, no results.
    Im thinking maybe its a BIOS issue of some sort..
  3. Try updating the motherboard bios with the 8800 installed

    Yep, that worked. A bit strange that you need to Update BIOS like that isnt it?
    Thanks alot.
  5. Wow, I wouldn't have expected needing that on such a new board.
  6. I think many older boards don't work with pci 2.1 cards because of this, the gpu bios is probably in a different part of memory, the m/b bios can't shake hands with it .
    The older 1.0 boards don't get bios updates anymore.
