No signal to monitor - ASUS M5A97

Greetings everyone,

I have recently put together a computer. All components are brand new.

I have:

MoBo : ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970
CPU : AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ Eight-Core Processor
GPU : HIS H675F1GD Radeon HD 6750
Crucial M4 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
PSU : OCZ Fatal1ty 750W Modular Gaming 80Plus Bronze
G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

When I power it all up my MoBo has a solid red light on the VGA_LED. I get no signal to my monitor. Is this a faulty GPU? All fans are going strong when I am powered up.

Things I have attempted :

Changing the cord going to the GPU.
Held down the power button for 30-60 seconds
Tried putting only 2 sticks of RAM in the blue slots.

Not sure what else to do. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

  1. Without another know good video card to test with, it will be hard to say for certain. I've had several new builds have that happen. In every case it was the board that had to be RMA'ed. That's not to say it is your issue, tho. But I was able to test with a known good card to be sure.

  3. @ serenitys
    Which board/CPU do you have?
  4. Try the video card in a different fully functional computer.
