PCIe Graphics card not getting signal

I too have an issue w/ my e machine T3646 and a PNY (nVidia) GeForce 8600 GTS 512 OC 3GB DDR3 PCIe graphics card. I have AMD Sempron LE-1250 chipset, 2GB ram, and nVidia GeForce 6100 on board. I'm running win 7 Ult. 64/ x86 (2 SATA HD's 1 os ea.) I tested this card a week before I purchased it, and the first time it went in I had no issues at all...the card really pepped the machine up. I returned the card to owner ( he left it w/me) and reinstalled it a week later. Now I'm getting no signal at all, I had to plug my monitor back into the on board so I could get to the bios to switch the adv. conf. to PCIe slot, f 10'd it and switched back to the card (same monitor, have both DVI and VGA plugged in) and still nothing at all...the monitor switches from analog/digital until it times out and defaults to analog. The on board is still working even though the bios are set to PCIe slot. I did remove the boards battery and re-installed with no change. The card does not show up in device mgr. either....(?) is this a bus controller issue? any thoughts or suggestions welcomed.. Thank you.....

  1. Why did you return it to the owner? Something sounds fishy, did you pay for this card and do you trust the person you got this card from? Sounds like a bait and switch game to me? Could be way off base, but if it worked perfectly, you returned it, got it back a week later and now no work? Really? What do you think?

    Thanks for your reply,...but as I stated in the previous thread...I held on to the card..I only took it out until I paid for it in case someone came up with the money before me....so I held the card....no bait and switch....
