I bought a XFX 7950 DD yesterday while on sale. After coming home and installing it I get no display from the card.
I've tried the other 2 PCIE slots on the motherboard, tried different output cables, and made sure the power connectors were inserted properly. The fans spin up when I start the system and it continues to post fine with no error beeps, just no display.
My old 9500GT still works with the motherboard so I know it cannot be that.
Any suggestions of what to try before I RMA it?
Also, the box and the manual states the card needs 2 6-pin power connectors, while my card has 1 8-pin and 1 6-pin, looking at this card, which is the same as mine although mine says 79XX rather than 7950, it also has 2 6-pins.
Is my card defective having the 8-pin or is it supposed to be like this?
My other system components are:
Asus P7P55D Evo
8GB Corsair Vengence 1600 ram
OCZ ModXStream-Pro 600W
