I just put together a new computer. It ran for a few days using an older ATI card. When my EVGA GTX 560 ti returned from an RMA, I quickly plugged it into the mobo. After that, no more video. I switched back to the ATI card and I continued to have no video. The computer boots fine and plays the windows start sound. I can type in my password and hear Windows open. I can even run a program that had a shortcut on my desktop solely because I can remember where it was to double-click it. This is terribly frustrating.
I started with the video card installed. I tried taking it out and putting it back. I tried moving it to another slot. I tried multiple cards that I know work. Nothing. I tried just using the onboard graphics. I tried using DVI, VGA, VGA with DVI adapter. I tried all inputs. I tried clearing CMOS using the i/o port button. The power cables are all firmly in place. I do not understand why the new card made the video completely stop working. The computer boots fine in about 5 seconds (love those SSDs) but I can't see anything. Any help is super appreciated.

reset CMOS internally then restart and press f4 to boot to safe mode then restore to last know good config. worked on my Z68 extreme 4 when I had same problem
Tried it. Pressing f4 did not bring up anything I could see. Same blank screen/no signal to monitor.
You could test the monitor on another system. Maybe the graphics card that was returned from RMA has messed up your monitor somehow.
I tested the monitor on another system and it works. This is a really strange problem.
did you remove the ati drivers before installing your 560ti? Try using the integrated intel graphics, and if it works, uninstall the ati software. Then use a program like driver sweeper to completely remove the registry files for ati.
