I got as a gift last Monday the card listed above. The card was replacing a ATI Radeon X1500. So I power down my PC, unplugged it, took out my old card and put the new one in (including hooking the six pin up). I hooked it up, made sure it was seated ok and then hooked just the video cable, keyboard, and power cord back up to it and turned it on.
The fan powers up but I show no video and get no beeps. I try a few more times with no luck, so I remove and reseat the card and try again. Still nothing, the computer seems to be booting up, but not showing any video. At this point I am wondering if the card itself is bad, so I called up ASUS and did the troubleshooting they wanted and still no luck. I wanted to ask before I sent it back could their be any other issues I'm over looking? My system stats are below.
Also, I noticed on it, it looks like only 5 pins have anything in them as the middle top (if you are looking at the card fan down) is empty space, also on the card itself (can't tell if this is a defect or not) one of the gold pieces at the very end (4 or 5th from end) doesn't go all the way down, it looks like the part of it that forms the V didn't get put on it. Not sure if either of these would have an effect on it.
