Video Card Issue???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey I built a new rig from old parts and everything turn on OK except I get nothing on the monitor. I Put a brand new GeForce 6600 in there so that shouldn't be the problem, but I don't know what else it could be . Please Help!!

PS. The board is also old, so could it maybe be the BIOS battery? But it would still boot the video card BIOS correct?

Make sure the graphics card is seated completely in it's slot. If it requires a power connector (I'm not sure if the 6600 does or not, pretty sure it doesn't) make sure that is plugged in as well.

I double checked the seating of the card and the power cord is plugged into the card as well. Any other ideas as to what it could be?

Assuming your monitor is good, you either have a bad card or a dead slot. Do you have any other AGP cards you can sub in to test the slot?

What kind of PSU is in there?

PSU should be good cuz the fans come on all that and its 420 and the CPU is only like an 1800 plus or something. Also, it should be noted that when I DO NOT have the power connector plugged into the GFX card, there is a loud, never ending beep. So I would assume that the card is being recognized to a certain extent correct?

just as an update: I'm scrapping this project and starting over with some other hardware bits and pieces. Like a new motherboard and CPU lol. Maybe it'll work then.
