Okay, so i just recently replaced my gpu, which is a 660ti, and fitted it inside my computer. When i plugged in the cable and powered up, no screen. So i tried the onboard slot and it worked, went to safe mode, installed the gpu disk drivers, and rebooted. When i plugged the cord back to the gpu and booted up, blank screen. When i switched to onboard, nothing ether. System powers up properly , just no screen. No bios, no nothing. POST beeped when i took out the ram, indication that the mobo works. No beeps hit me when i boot up, so POST isnt telling me the problem..
Update. So i removed the gpu and put the cable into the onboard slot, and the screen booted up. Does this mean my new gpu is shot or something, or is power not going to it?
this is the wiring and sometimes one of the yellow is not connect http://www.allpinouts.org/index.php/PCI_Express_%28PCIe... ,what is the power of your psu and do you use 2 separate power cable for the gpu ? try to test the card on another sytem and make shure both power cables are connected from psu to card ,does the gpu fan spin ?
you got one with a missing yellow and the other is having all the 6 cable in do you have another 6 pins pci-e slot on that psu or you could try to use this http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/pciexpress.... if you have one on hand replacing the one with the missing pin from this one .
No, i do not have a 6 pin onhand. I have 3 other similar wires and they all have only 5 connectors. The only one that has all 6 is the one built into the gpu itself. Is it honestly all that important?
Also, these are the ones that came straight come the box itself, so im semi skeptical abouti t
The 2nd one is mine. However, i looked, and didnt find the 6+2 cord. Again, is the 6 yellow pin thing THAT cruicle? I could go buy one at a local store, but i just need to know if its important enough to make the gpu fail to work. I was able to install its drivers from the disk without one, so this is a problem x3
if you look at it the 6+2 is red if you dont have all the cable that are on coolmax link i would rma this psu but yes you could try to use one of those 4 to 6 pins splitter to power you card ,but i would try to test that card in another system before buying anything in case she does not work .
On a side note I know my card is fine because I have had it tested in another machine after RMA'ing the GFX card. Seems like we are in the same boat akumati. Perhaps there is something fishy with these psu's that doesn't deliver the right wattage?
