Can't recieve display signal from GPU or Motherboard connectors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just finsihed building my brothers computer last night.
I was hoping the Intel 4670K and its hd4600 integrated graphics would hold allow us to hold out till christmas to buy a Graphics Card.

Fortunetly, I fiddled with the files on COD Ghosts and got it working on the same night.
Now this morning he goes on COD Ghosts and the screen says no signal....even though we set the graphics on LOW settings for everything.


Then I thought I could simply chuck my gigabyte 660ti in it for the time being. I installed it and connected it up, and when I tried turning the computer on, I didin't get a display signal from either the motherboards VGA connector, or the HDMI on the GPU ( which I wasn't execpting to as there's no software installed yet)

Then I thought maybe I have to install the drivers and software first. I took the graphics card out and booted up and the display is working formt he motherboard VGA connector.
Put the driver CD in I got in the box of the Graphics Card.
The setup tells me it can't find the suitable hardware.

So now what will happen when I buy a Graphics card tomorrow, how will I be able to run the setup and get a display?

We are using his TEAC TV via VGA cable, HDMI doesn't scale out properly

Has anyone else had this problem or heard of this problem before?

Its a Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3HP Intel 1150, i5 4670K Haswell, 2x4GB Kingston ram. And yes I put the Graphics card in the PCI-e 16x slot.
