Video Card problem..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Buddy of mine just built a whole new computer, and his monitor isn't getting any video. He picked up a Q6600, the evga 8800GT, 680i SLi mobo, and a few others. He says everything else powers up fine, he just isn't getting an video. Any ideas as to why this could be? My first assumption is that his video card came fried, but it could be a mobo issue too. Everything else on the mobo is powering up, and the fan on the video card is working. Any ideas? Thanks!

me, i would try to swap out his card with another card, and see if that works, if it does, test his card in another computer, and see if it works.

hope this helps some XD

make sure the 6 pin PCI-E power connector is connected. the GPU fan runs off the actual slot, so just because the fan is spinning, doesnt mean the GPU has enough power. If it is, go into the BIOS, make sure you set it to check the PCI-E slot first, because sometimes if it's set at auto, it will find the onboard video first. the only other thing i can think of is his power supply just isn't up to snuff.
