EVGA GTX 680 no signal to monitor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys and gals. You seem like some of the sharpest minds out there regarding these things, so I will ask you for help.

I'm new to this forum, so I'm sorry that my first thread is a desperate cry for help, without me having contributed to the forum beforehand.
Note that English is not my first language, so excuse me if my sentences seem a bit clumpsy.

To the point:
I've just bought a new pre-build custom gaming PC from a little shop with just one guy.

The specs are:
- HASWELL INTEL i5 4670K, 3.4GHZ (3.8GHZ TURBO) UNLOCKED
- UNLOCKED "K" model for "fremtidssikring" dvs. mulighed for OC **
- COOLERMASTER HYPER-TX3
- ASUS Z87-K motherboard
- 2GB DDR5 EVGA SIG2 GTX680OC
- 250GB SSD, SOLID STATE DISK (SAMSUNG 840)
- 8GB DDR3 1600MHZ KINGSTON "DUALCHANNEL" HYPER-X
- ASUS 24x SATA DUALLAYER
- 650W XFX PRO SERIES 80+ OG SLI CERTIFIED
- COOLERMASTER ENFORCER case

I received it yesterday and tried to plug it in my TV straight away, using the HDMI output to the HDMI input on my monitor. No signal was received.

I tried with another HDMI cable to rule out the cable as being the culprit. No luck.

Then I tried using a VGA cable to connect the two, using different combinations:
- VGA from motherboard VGA to the TV's VGA input
- VGA to DVI-I (using adapter) to TV's VGA input

Still no luck.

I then tried two different VGA cables to rule out a faulty cable. Nothing.

When I boot the computer, here is what happens:
-Lights in front light up as they should; the one over the start button, the hard disc and the disc drive also light up.
-Fans start spinning like they should; both CPU and GPU fans.
-There's a green light that lights up on the mobo

One thing that strikes me as odd though; there's not the usual series of "beeps" when I boot.

In my mind, what this comes down to is either:
- GPU has maybe come loose during shipping.
- The DVI-I to VGA to TV is no good for some reason; thinking of trying a straight digital connection; DVI-D to HDMI into the TV.
- Maybe a problem in the BIOS (no beeps)? Maybe I should try resetting it?
- I also saw that some people have had luck when they reseated their graphics card, RAM, etc. But if it is faulty RAM I would think beeping would occur?

I'm a bit tentative fiddling around inside the PC at the point, warranty and all, until I had a chance to talk to the seller on monday.

But any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated anyway. I really hope of you guys have an idea on what to do.


Regards

I think that processor has an integrated gpu (iGPU) which assumes the role of the primary graphics adapter. Easy to check as just plug your monitor via dvi into the connector on the back of the motherboard if it has one and see if the system comes up.

To change to your graphics card you need to set it in your bios- refer to your boards manual for this but if its an asus board then the DEL key should get you in there.

If that doesn't work phone or email the guy you got it off and ask him what's up.

This thread can now be closed.

I solved the problem following the hunch that the cables were the probblem. Spent around 20 bucks on a dvi-d to hdmi and that was that. Oh the joy of me having a crazy high end pc and a whole summer vacation to enjoy it in.
