Hi all im new here and require some help if anyone knows the solution. 

 

I have a TF560 a2+ with AMD 64 athlon x2, 240v psu , x2 1g drr2 800 ram and a sapphire hd 3850, I have installed the graphics card into the motherboard and plugged in all power cables to graphics card yet I do not see anything on the monitor, Im just wondering is the graphics card compatible with the motherboard?

 

By the way the motherboard doesnt have an internal graphics card so i can not plug monitor into that?

 

any suggestions on what it could be

 

Kindest regards 

 

Danny

From what I can see it should be compatable with your board. You show your PSU as 240v, is that supposed to be volts? Or is it watts? If it's watts then you're too small. :blink:

230v is equivalent to 230 watts depending on the amperage, which is barely enough to push that system. Also the pci-e x16 slot could be bad as well. Was you experiencing this issue prior to the video card? Is this a new build that your building, or are you simply swapping out the video card? Provide us with some more details please.

Ok, make sure that you have the monitor plugged into the correct DVI port on the back of the card. You'll have 2 connection slots on the back, and make sure that the monitor is plugged into the correct one. Also make sure that all cables are hooked back up correctly on the motherboard.

 

Does the graphics card come on, and the fan spins?

do you have another monitor that you can test with? Also on the monitor, is there a setting to switch sources? I know some monitors allow you to switch sources so you can have 2 computers on 1 monitor.

 

Also can you reset your bios for me? Most of the time there will be a jumper that you take off of 2 pins and then put it back. Also you can remove the CMOS battery for 30 seconds, then put it back in and see if that helps.
