And I can't figure out why the graphics card isn't giving any output. My TV just says no signal and it's on the right HDMI input. The graphics card is plugged in to the power supply and so is the processor with the 4/8 pin connector. The graphics card and everything seems to turn on. But I still get no signal. 


Here's the parts i'm using:


Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131876


CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284


Graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130839


Power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182073


RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314


Hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148321


DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204


I'm starting to think one of the parts are bad, like the processor or something. Thanks for any help I get.

Make sure that the processor is seated correctly, I had a similar issue once, the lights and fans came on but nothing else happens. reseat the processor,and reseat all power connections and try again.

Hi, Stray thought here. Can You hook up a Monitor to the card. It could be that the TV does not like the HDMI output. The HDMI may not be acceptable to the TV until the drivers are loaded and the resolution and refresh are set to what the TV needs.

Also try the card in the other PCIexpress slots that it fits just in case one is bad.


It would be unusual for a CPU to be bad out the box. A possibility would be a bent Pin on the CPU.


Are You sure the memory is compatible with the Motherboard.

Also can You confirm the BIOS version from the BOX or a label on the chip?

ASUS shows that You need as least 0806 for that CPU"

FX-8350(FD8350FRW8KHK,4.0GHz,8C,125W,rev.C0,AM3+) ALL 0806


From the manual 1-24 Also follow the manual for memory placement


Press the GO button before POST to enable MemOK! or press it to quickly load the
preset profile (GO_Button file) for temporary overclocking when in OS.



Good Luck

Have you tried the DVI ports on the graphics card with another monitor, if you have one that takes DVI?
