GTX 460 issues


So I assembled a computer a few months ago when I was in the US.
Intel i5-760
MSI H55m-E23 mobo
Antec Earthwatts 750W

Plugged in everything. Worked like a charm.
Then I moved to India and on the way the CPU fan broke so i had to replace it with a new one.
I decided to start from scratch for a litle better power management. Cables were all over the place.
I just plugged in the power supply to the motherboard and gpu, RAM and tried booting up. No display from the 460. I didnt connect my HDD cause i assumed it would go straight to the BIOS. Tried on-board video. Turns out the mobo doesnt have onboard video. Tried a 6600 GT. Worked flawlessly.

If anyone has any ideas, do let me know. Its gotta be the card. I did plug it into an old monitor that only has vga and used a vga cable with a dvi plug converter thing since the gtx only has DVI ports. Not sure if that has to do with anything.

  1. did you plug in the power connector to the 460? try re-seating the 460 in the slot.

    Yup connected both cables PCI-E into the card. The fan on the card turns on. Just no video

    what cable are you using to give signal to your screen ?

    I used a VGA cable with a vga to dvi converter cuz i had my old monitor on me. My new one just arrived and is completely DVI so gonna check that out tomorrow(left the desktop at work).
    Do you think the cable/monitor could be the problem?
