It should be attached directly to the video card. tiberionx January 14, 2012 1:56:08 AM well of course it was first plugged in to my video card, but when i couldnt get a signal, i tried my on-board video which worked. Should also note that it takes a while to hear the POST boot beep and sometimes it doesnt even boot that i have to press the power button again this just happened this morning, everything was working fine last night Related resources No video signal when PC Boots - Forum VID card on HTPC - Forum No monitor signal when I plug in a second vid card / Random Black Outs - Forum Monitor doesn't get signal from vid card , - Forum Monitor doesn't get signal from vid card , - Forum Can't find your answer ?
