I just built myself a new machine and I think there's an issue with my video card. I put it all together and when I turn it on I hear the sounds I expect to hear (no OS, so no start up sounds yet). But my monitor remains blank, claiming it's not getting a signal.
My machine is as follows;
ASUS P5NE-SLI mobo
ASUS 8800GTS 320MB VGA
Intel E6750 processor
2x SATA Seagate 320GB HDDs
2GB Kingston DDR2 PC6400 RAM
the monitor is a sweet new samsung 206bw 20 inch widescreen.
I've done all the 'obvious' stuff, checked if the video card is in the right PCI slot, it is. I checked with a different monitor and got the same problem, whereas both monitors work fine on a different machine. I also checked if it's connected to the right DVI port, that's not it either. My card is plugged in properly, it has the extra power plugged in too, so I'm drawing a blank, the only other thing I can think of is a bad video card. Are there any other options?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
