I get 5 beeps when I connect my graphics card to my new build

I started my new build today and everything works fine when I havejust my RAM and Mobo connected, I can start up and get the bios screen and everything. The second I connect my graphics card I get 5 beeps and no bios screen, nothing will come up on my screen... I'm not sure if that means the graphics card id shot.. or what. Please let em know, here is my build

  1. Please help, I am very stressed out, this is my first build and I have 900$ worth of stuff not working right now...
  2. Check out


    Are all the connections to the NB made in the processor area?
  3. did you put the power cable on the hd 7850
  4. 40amps enough to run that ? ? in the BIOS, look for the video arrangement. Does it point to the card/pci-e/peg/... whatever ? is it set to auto ?
  5. make sure your mb bios is up to date and the video card in the right slot. alos make sure the 4/8 pin eps cable is connected.
  6. Check with your Mobo manufacturer manual/website for bios error beep codes.

    That will put you in the right direction :pt1cable:
