OK

 

I will try that one and i will tell you later what's gonna happen.

but i don't think it's the side problem, maybe a slot problem because i had tried the card in another motherboard with the same CPU and RAM and it work fine.

 

 

sorry for my bad English

you are probably right. I was thinking it may be loose connection from vga port to card and that it made contact while in the other machine.

If DVI does not work then inspect motherdoard slot with magnifying glass for dirt, broken pin. Contacts on video card can be cleaned with pencil eraser. Brush crumbs off left by eraser.

Hi, If the card works OK in a different motherboard, I also suspect the present motherboard, however one final thing, do you have a different PCIe slot on this motherboard to try the card in?

If only one available slot, then remove the motherboard entirely and examine underneath with a magnifying glass, look for cracked copper tracks and any black marks on soldered connections.

 

Otherwise a new motherboard is the next thing.

Every once in awhile you run across a card and slot and case combination that gives you problems.

 

Install your card, leave the retaining screw out.  Make sure it is seated completely.  Use a flashlight if you have to verify it is level in the slot.  Try it like that to see if there is any video output.

 

Agree that you could have a faulty PCIE slot or bad chipset.

 

Good luck with it.
