Hi, I have an Ibuypower computer with hd radeon 7770's crossfired. and an i5 3770k. I only got 30fps on minecraft so I thought it was the onboard intel hd 4000. So I uninstalled it and then my screen went black. How do I fix it? When I boot it up it says no signal. Please help.

You have the monitor plugged into the integrated video card. Plug the cable into the red plug on the bottom.

If you look, he is plugging it into a VGA connection. His 7770's only have DVI and HDMI. Do you have a DVI or hdmi cable along with a monitor that has a dvi or hdmi connection?

Down in the middle of your case, you have two red plugs which are the video hook up for the xfired 7770's. PLug the monitor cable into either one of them. Because they are xfired either will work

Check the back of your monitor, do you have a connection that look like the red one on the back of your computer? It will probably not be red on your monitor, but it will look the same.

Ok, then you need a DVI cable to connect it from the back of your Monitor to the red port on your computer.

Once you plug the cable in, make sure you select DVI at the source if the monitor does not auto detect.

The red port on the back of your PC (if that picture is your pc) is the DVI port.

They do make adapters if you don't want to change your monitor.

This is what a DVI port looks like.



You will have two of these on the back, down where the slots for expansion cards are.
