Gigabyte H61M-D2P-B3: Monitor issues

Hi all,

This is a baffling one. I just installed the above board powered by a Coolmax Model 80MM, 700 watt power supply. When I first powered I didn't see any display, but it appeared to be otherwise booting normally. After a bit of plugging and unplugging the monitor connected to the board's VGA out suddenly came to life and I was able to install the OS.

After the OS installed and I had all drivers loaded I tried the other display on the DVI port and set them up as a dual display. Oddly, it seems to detect the display correctly, but the screen is blank.

I have done some searching and the only thing I can find that seems to be a possibility is that perhaps the PS is not powerful enough, but I think I have a pretty decent PS.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Dennis

HEy!

Check and see if your RAM is seated properly in their slots. I had the same issue and found that to be the reason, but on a difft Mobo..

Thanks for the reply. It seems that it just doesn't like my KVM switch. The built in video card won't recognize my switch for some reason which is a bit of a pain.
