Hello Everyone, I purchased an ASUS GTX 560 DirectCU, but for some reason I when I install the GTX 560 with one 6-pin connector my computer and the graphics card start up but nothing displays to the monitor. When I use two 6-pin connectors my computer won't even start up. Is this a problem with bad graphics card, or is it incompatible with my motherboard? Thanks for any help anyone can give.

My PC Specs:

I Believe my Motherboard is: FOXCONN ALOE 1.01
Power Supply: 750watts
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 ~3.6GHz
Old Graphics Card: GeForce GT 220
RAM: 12 GB
Computer Model: HP e9300z

Never heard of that board/nor can I find any info online under that name.

But, your card requires two 6 pin power connectors..........why would you only put in one? That's not a very good idea. You are just asking for trouble.
The second power connector is NOT optional.

Either the power supply can't handle the new card or the card is bad. What power supply do you have? Even though a low end, junk brand 750w PSU should handle a GTX560.

Not a great power supply but not bad either. Have you tried reseating the video card?

Making sure it is seated correctly in the PCI E slot.

Reseating means physically taking out the graphics card, then putting it back in.

To make sure you have it all the way in and flush so all connections are made.

As sardonicjester posted have tried plugging both of the PCI-E power connects to the card? That card will not work with just one power connecter you must use both.

If it is a PCI-Express card and your motherboard has a PCI-Express slot it is compatible. The standard is what matters.
