After tying down cables, no video outputs to monitor. Why? - Page 3

Sorry for the delay in the post, I wasn't around all day. Anyways, no, my motherboard shows no codes on the debug LED, it just stays blank. So no help there. And yes, my card does start up its fans even without the PCI-e cables plugged into it. It behaves exactly the same as if they were plugged in. Again, does this lead to a power supply issue?

If it does, then I would point at the motherboard.
And really this is just going off a hunch, I would love to have this be a simple fix and Ive missed something.
Unfortunately I don't have a meter, and I have no easy way to access one, so I can't perform this test. With that being said, I really do think it's a power supply issue, as that's the only thing I was messing with when it went bad. Should I just grab a new power supply and return it if it doesn't fix the problem?

Try a diffrent cable, wiggle them and make sure you didn'r over zip it cutting a wire, use a ohm meter to chk pus and wires
Hope this helps

Sorry for the delayed response, work has me tied up at times..
If the return policy lets you do that then go for it. That would be a good way to find out the issue here.

About the only way it could be the motherboard is if a psu cable was half plugged in and surged.
