No video and need some help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have an urgent issue that I need to try and diagnose ASAP. This is a new build about 2 weeks old and I am currently not getting and video.

I have an XFX Radeon HD 6850 I have tried everything I know I have put the VGA into 2 PCIE slots and have tried both DVI ports each time on my monitor and nothing. I have also tried HDMI in both slots on the monitor and my TV and still nothing.

I am not sure how to test if it’s bad or not but the fan does run if that means anything please let me know anything I can do.

Has the computer run before this video card, or is this the first time you are trying to start it up?

Can you try the card in another computer?

Make sure all the power connections are plugged in, EPS +12v, 6 or 8 pin plugs to the card itself, etc.

Maybe a CMOS reset?

I am not seeing any lights on the card at all. I put the mobo speaker on and tested to see if it was being caused by the ram.

Removed the ram and started and got beep when I replaced the ram I did not get a beep so to me that means the ram is ok and I am looking at the vid card.

The card, may have passed away. But its hard to say if thats just the case.. Even so, have you tried any other cards to see if it gives you video? Or tried putting the card into another computer to see if it gives any video?

That would actually indicate that your problem is the ram
unless i'm reading it wrong or you mistyped that
