I just purchased a 9600GSO for my computer. I put it in and my monitor shows "No Signal". I thought it was my BIOS and it needed to be updated, but gateway shows there are no updates available for my computer.

The next question would be, is the card even compatible or is it a DOA?
Here are the specs:

Computer/Motherboard: Gateway DX4200 / Gateway RS780 (AM2)
Graphics Card: XFX GeForce 9500 GSO

Also, my MOBO could run a 8600GT, if that makes any difference.

EDIT: Sorry to push it, but I need to know if there is a way to fix it or if I need to send it back to newegg. Its a rebate product and also I have a limited time to send it back.

Are you plugging in the PCIE 6pin power connector?

There isn't one on this card... Even the instruction manual that came with the card says to, but there isnt one on the actual card... go figure.

I am also running Windows 7 64bit SP1, if that helps.
