New 6950 not being detected?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just installed my new XFX 6950 card but I am getting a message on my monitor saying 'No signal detected' (which is what happens usually when the monitor is on but the pc turned off).

I'm not too sure if this means that the card is not getting enough power or that it is broken? The fan on it works when I turn the pc on.

My PSU is 580W but I thought that should be just enough? I'm running a Q6600 at stock speeds, 4gb of ram, 1 HDD and 1 drive.

So yeah any ideas on which one it could be? I've tried the usual reinstallment and also tried taking the power off the drive and case fans but doesn't have an affect. I've also tried both DVI and HMDI but they both display the same message Cheers.

Is this coming from a known good build and all you are doing is swapping graphics cards?

Maybe it's a dead card? Try in another PC to be sure. If it still doesn't work then RMA it.

Only thing is I don't have another PC to test it on and don't really want to risk RMAing it as the site I bought it from charges £30+ apparently for 'checking costs'

nevermind, I'm such an idiot. The molexto 6 pin adapter had popped out behind my motherboard when I had it on the ground. All up and working now. Thanks for the help though guys.
