Problem with EVGA GTS 450: No signal

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
So a friend of mine gave me his old CPU heatsink, and I installed it last night. However, after reassembling my computer and powering on, my monitors weren't receiving any signal. The fan turns on, so I know it's receiving power, but nothing else happens.

I've removed and reseated the GPU a few times to make sure it was seated correctly, and tried both outputs, but I'm still not getting a signal.


I'm kinda at a loss as to what I should do now and would appreciate any advice.

First - make sure a 6pin power connector is plugged into the card (It seems stupid, but is a common mistake). But considering you've plugged the thing into a couple times, its unlikely you've forgotten. Also try cleaning out the PCI-E ports.

Second, your bios might not be switching the integrated video out to the actual GPU.

Finally, RMA? - Oh wait, you cant... Suck bro frown.gif

EDIT: Never mind, you mobo doesn't have an integrated video out.

Do your mobo have onboard display.If so take analogue cable and connect to monitor to see if it start from the mobo's display port.

It is quite possible you have bricked your MOBO. Every time that has happened to me it was mobo related.

Check if ur 8 pin cpu power cable is plugged in

Check or Change the 6 pin plug going to the grapics card

Reset The bios via hardware pins


Reseat your processor by removing the Cpu cooler, then taking out the cpu and putting it back in.

Reseat your Graphics card

If still doesnt work, place the gts 450 in another 16x slot.

No, can't plug directly into the mobo :C


The computer was working PERFECTLY 5 minutes before I powered down to disassemble.

I had a bit of trouble removing the GPU, and I'm afraid I might have damaged it pulling it out. Not sure though.

You should call tech support. You never know they might be able to help and your might be able to RMA. But before you do that. You should turn off your computer, unplug it then hold down the power buttion for 5sec to let the power drain, then take the battery out of your motherboard and leave it out for 30min (just to be safe) then put it back in, plug every thing up and turn your pc on.

This has happened to me multiple times, just fiddle with it, I am sure that it will work. If it does not open up your card and make sure every thing is clean ect.

Is there any way to differentiate between a GPU and Mobo problem?

Pull out the GPU and turn on the PC to see if it beeps or does SOMETHING. Also you can try with any other GPU that you may have lying around.
