Turned off last night. Two extra monitors arrived today.

Hooked up into 590. Start. Everything turns on. No video. Try multiple ports on 590. No avail.

Somewhere in this general time frame it would boot through BIOS, say "Loading Windows" then no video.

Pull 590 out. Hook into MOBO. No video.

Hey.. my boot device LED is on. After pulling HDD, SSD, CD drive, I can't even see the BIOS. Tried multiple monitors, tried multiple ports, tried without the 590. Tried a lot of stuff.

Pulled a RAM stick out. Why? I don't know. Hey, I see the BIOS. "Loading Windows". No video.

Tried to shorten that as far as possible. Who has ideas?

Note.. I can hear the noise it makes when it goes to desktop, but no video. Ever.

Update.

Plugged DVI into MOBO. Nothing still.

Plugged DVI into second port on 590. Got video. Let go of the cable and the screen had a lot of red and line across it.

MSI Afterburner showed a message: "No hardware detected."

Device Manager showed unknown device.

Hit "Scan for new hardware" and no video

umm.. bye bye 590?

Last update. Hooked an old ATI 4650 in. Guess what? It is running through the BIOS with the worst green picture I've ever seen.

"Umm hello Newegg? Yeah this MOBO is fried. Can I get a new one please?"

Sigh. I'm utterly lost as to what just happened.

Put the 590 in a different PCIE slot. It booted and loaded windows fine.

Adjusted everything and got surround running fine.

Turned off. Put back in original PCIE slot and re-installed the other stick of RAM.

Loaded windows then did something with the registry that I didn't catch before restarted to a perfect desktop.

Oh well.. I guess it fixed itself.

Give the cable a wiggle, everything ok?
Could be.You know sometimes the solution to what you think is a big problem can be so simple.Check the cables now to make sure it's good so that you don't run into this problem again.

I don't have a clue really. At all.

It only began to work after 4 GB of RAM was out and the card was in a different slot. I tried multiple monitors and got the same red lines in the one port.

Either way.. At this point I've got everything in it's original spot and it works

I'm not touching anything else.

It could of been some dust build up and the re-seating of the parts dislodged it
