Hello everyone smile.gif  It's a shame that my first post is about problem I am having.Recently I bought a custom pc. After puting all parts together and pressing the power button I noticed there's no display on my monitor which is also new. My suspections are that motherboard somehow won't read my GPU. Because when I turn DVI into motherboard and not into GPU slot there's display(because of integrated intel HD graphics) and everything works fine except windows and bios won't detect my GPU at all, like it's not even there. I tried resseting CMOS several times. I installed newest UEFI(bios) version. Tried setting north bridge setting to GEN1. Nothing works. And yes it is seated properly and receiving power from PSU. Same with HD7770 which I had from earlier

Later I checked GTX 760 and HD 7770 in friends computer (motherboard: Asus P5P43TD PRO)
Took his graphic card(Nvidia 9800 GT Silent Cell) And strangely it worked on my computer without any additional settings.

My build is: http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/1MhFX

P.S. Dr Debuger shows A2 and A6 errors while booting. They seem to be something about IDE and SCSI detection.

P.P.S. Sorry for my english which is bad hehe biggrin.gif 

Hope anyone knows a solution for this. I would be really glad smile.gif

Did the GTX 760 and 7770 work in your friends computer?

Nope. Do you think it could be 2 dead GPU's? Because 7770 used to work.

Very possible they could both be bad. Are they brand new? I also see that the GTX 760 requires 1x 8pin and 1x 6pin connector. Both of those are plugged in right?

PSU is a little on the low side for that system.

 

Also, I feel like this is a driver issue. If you can boot with the 9800 GT, I'd check the Device Manager and see if you have any indication of those other cards showing (Show hidden devices)

GTX 760 Is new. And HD 7770 Is a bit used. But was functioning prior this build.

Windows didn't detect any of cards. So did bios. I would install drivers but i cant since windows cant detect GPU.

So, to clarify, if you put the GTX 760 or HD 7770 into the system, you get no picture? While mounted, have you tried plugging in the integrated video?

He also said that a 9800 GT worked but the other two cards didn't.

Are both 1x8pin and 1x6pin connectors plugged in? I dont think the 9800 GT requires any connectors, so that may bring up a PSU issue like Netghost56 said.

9800 GT does require 6 pin connector

Gotcha, I wasnt 100% sure if it did or not. But, like i asked before, the 760 needs both 1x6pin and 1x8pin. Are they both plugged in?

Yeah. I tried different slots and made sure cables were attached correctly. Does this mean GPU is DOA?

GTX 760 requires 500 watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 30 amps on the +12 volt rail.

 

HD 7770 requires a minimum 450W PSU

 

9800 GT requires a minimum 400W PSU

 

 

I'm still thinking your PSU is at fault. I've just never seen two video cards go bad together.

Hmmm you might be right. But on the box of GPU(760 in particular) says 450 watts needed. Also +12V amps max load is 46. But i'll try to borrow a higher in watts PSU from a friend (if he has it).

That power supply runs 12V@46A from what Im reading. I may be missing something. Now what I have not seen before is a video card that takes both 6pin and 8pin connectors. Usually its 2 of 1 of them.
