My HD 7950 arrived 2 days ago, and I was excited to put it in my computer to replace my hd 7790, as I got a great deal. It wouldn't show up on the monitor. Also, the monitor light, instead of changing from orange to blue (on). The power light just turned off. The fans and everything work and run. I had to put in my old GPU to get a display. I am thinking of RMA'ing the HD 7950. My computer specs are at http://speccy.piriform.com/results/6NkD0iRu6y6BxbXhcyWrkb3

have you fiddled your PCI settings in the BIOS?

 

there's a few things you can change in there that can make video cards work.

You could try the graphics card in another system to see if it works or not.

this is good advice,.... though there is the exact same issue with you new card all over the internet.The chance of a DOA card is pretty slim.

It is a uefi bios. There isn't much to change and the graphics card is too big to fit in my other computers.

I would even consider putting the pci to legacy for this... Can test it with 3d settings after to see if you are getting the full power of the gpu.
