7870XT not sending signal to monitors

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just bought a new motherboard, connected everything the way it was before, computer boots up fine, motherboard is functioning, all fans functioning, even the GPU fans are spinning, but no signal to my monitors. I have tried reseating the RAM and CPU, but still no luck. Any help?

Have you tried re-seating the GPU and the external power connectors ? Tried only one monitor at a time ?

You mentioned a new motherboard, same board as before ?? Did you do a clean install of windows if it's a different board ? Could be a driver issue.

I've tried both those things, the board was upgraded from a P8P67 LE to P8P67 Deluxe. Are you saying I should reinstall my old motherboard and do a full reformat before reinstalling my new motherboard? The GPU hasn't been changed.

No not yet I am just asking some questions to get a feel for where you are at. Do you get vid at all, even boot stuff ?

Does your CPU/mobo have onboard vid ? Does it get signal with that ?

If you do have on board video of some kind on the new mobo try booting off that and getting in to the BIOS seeing if the graphics are set to PCI-e. It should have defaulted to that automatically but I have seen it several times where it has not and had to be manually changed. Just an idea for ya.

I do not have on board video on either of the cards. What are my other choices?
post #7 of 7
Well there are a couple different options here depending on what you have available to you.

Option 1- Rule out damaged GPU by testing known working GPU on new board (if you have one that is)
Option 2- Rule out card (or any other component failure) by swapping all components in to old board and checking for life. If this works I would suspect an issue with the new board.
Option 3- Given you get video at BIOS post would be to format HDD and do a fresh install due to driver compatibility issues. If you have no video AT ALL I would again try step 2

Kind of a pain in the butt I know.

Just a quick check (please don't be offended) Are the monitors set to the right input ?
Do you get any audio when booting up like windows log in sounds or anything ?
