Can't See anything through my monitor

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Heya
Iv just build my first computer. Everything works apart from i can't see anything through my monitor. Iv made sure everything was connected to the g card (Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550) properly. As i don't have a display port on my motherboard i can't use that so what can i do?

Welcome

First question is have you plugged in the extra power connectors on the card?

And has it ever worked?

Well, you're supposed to see stuff on the monitor, not through it. It's not a window, even if you are using Windows.

Are you sure "everything" works? It could be some other error, like the graphics card.

Hardware conflict or hardware has broken, put the card into the other station and try if it can work well, if not, just use your property of warranty.

I had a dvi cable fail recently with out warning wouldnt show nothing on the monitor. Try using monitor & cable on another computer to rule em out.. also are you getting any signal or message on your monitor? Normally you should get a cable unplugged or check video signal input or some kind of message to show you the monitor is working at least to rule the cable & monitor itself out.
