  1. Did you connect the power cable to the GPU? Is it connected to the monitor?
  2. It should work with your mobo. First try clearing the CMOS

    This video from youtube may give you the basic idea (even though it came from msi): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdHH9KrceR0
  3. Yes, you have a pciex16 slot so it should work. Does the mobo have on onboard graphics? If so try and disable them; had a friend with the exact same issue a few days ago and it was his onboard not being disabled interfering
  4. AbdullahG is right. Make sure all you connections (power, data, etc.) are all connected properly and securely.

    Also if you are using a dvi to vga adapter or similar adapter it may not display anything on the screen. If this is the case, try plugging a cable directly from the monitor to the jack on the video card.
  5. Yeah those adaptors suck

    I use one and haven't any issues. Im hoping the card just isnt plugged in; easiest for OP without more headache
  7. The adapters can be good or bad. I tend to get crappy ones depending on brand (the HIS adapters I got were flimsy and the pins bent easily; the reference card from Nvidia I once had came with decent adapters).

    I have a msi card; the adapter that came with it serves me well

    Hi again..
    Tried all that but still no good when i put 2 diff 8800 cards all workd good ..
    Im at a loss
  10. then maybe an RMA is in order? do you have another rig/friend to try your new card with to confirm that the new card is bad?
  11. Can you elaborate on the beeping? Is there a pattern, such as a long beep and then several short beeps (this is an example)? What is the pattern?
  12. There was 1 beep then 3 quick beeps when i first installed .Now when i turn on comp no beeps but still wont boot everything seems to be working all fans are working overtime just like when i comps about to boot.
    I was all excited when i installed this GTX .... Should i upgrade my mobo >?

    all the power connectors are in place, and the card is in the top PCIE slot right? if so, and you have another card that you have confirmed works in that same slot, then you might have a defective card. do you have a friend or family that you can install that card in another pc and see if it works to confirm?
  14. Hi...
    Yo flint.. the card has 2 pcie power connector power slots, I only use one yes ?
  15. The card actually still has the one long beep & 3 small beeps..All conectors plugged in place & yes im using top slot.
  16. One long and 3 short indicate memory issues. Your RAM could be at fault. Reseat it and see if it works.

    Try this:
    Boot with just your CPU, MoBo, PSU, and heatsink fan. If it beeps, you're good. If not, bad PSU.
    Add the RAM. If it beeps, you're good. If it does not, your RAM is bad.
    Add the GPU. If it beeps, your good. If not, bad GPU.
    Now add all the other parts one by one.
    Any issues that occur from here indicate either a motherboard issue or PSU issue.
