To rule out it's not your monitor DVI, try this;
 
  1. Hook up the VGA and DVI from monitor to graphics card while the system is on (I know this is bad, but only way to test the monitor DVI issue).
  2. Shut the system down.
  3. Remove the VGA cable from the graphics card leaving only DVI conneted.
  4. Turn off monitor and remove the power cord for around 10 seconds then plug the power cord and turn on monitor.
  5. Power on the system.
 
If you get display from the DVI connected, it's your monitor issue and unrelated to the graphics card DVI port.

thanks to all the dudes that helped..


well after solving it.. i tried flashing the 1 switch of the bios.. and then now i can't have the shaders unlocked.. i realized that the shaders were the only unlock.. not the voltages.. i think this is a blessing in disguise.. we wouldn't want to burn the card up because of the bios mod..

i guess we'll just have to push the clocks up..

same results though right? and much safer?

similar results, wont be that big of a performance hit, you can OC to between a 6950 and a 6970 and be perfectly safe, with good cooling you could OC to 6970 levels

so i tried putting the 6950 in the original slot.. i discovered that it was the pci e slot that went bad.. but i dont see any burns anywhere on the pci slot..
