Hello,
I am having an issue trying to use my graphics card for my pc. When I insert my graphics card, my computer has the beep sound that signifies it is booting but that's it. There is no bios screen or anything it's blank screen. I know there is no problem with my graphics card since other graphic cards with my pc and they had no problems. It is radeon hd6870 but i think I have enough power with 750 psu. So i tried checking my bios setting and I only see igfx and peg at int display first. Could that be my problem? My motherboard is GA-H61M-DS2. Thank you.

You are connecting the monitor cable to the card and connecting PCIe power from the PSU to it?

I agree:
- the BIOS should be set to "PCIE", not "IGFX" (IGFX is the motherboard graphics which you won't use)
- make sure you are connected to the VIDEO CARD

Also, you say you know your graphics card works because OTHER CARDS WORK? That's actually backwards. If you can hook up to OTHER cards and then this card doesn't work then your graphics card is the problem.

Based on what you've said (other graphics cards work) it sounds to me like you have a problem with the graphics card.

I'm sorry I made a mistake. I think it works because other card doesn't work. The other card was new and this one is new too.

You have to connect the monitor to the monitor I/O on the gpu, not the monitor I/O on the motherboard.

^+1 monitor to card, card will disable onboard if installed in many cases!
