So i built my computer from everything i had ordered off newegg, and turned on the power and i hear this high pitched whine. I figure out its coming from my gfx card which is a EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card. I think it looks like it might not go in all the way on the left side near the back of the case. Could this be the problem or did i get a faulty card?

Well, you definitely need to make sure it snaps into the slot fully. Otherwise you do risk ruining it. Does your computer boot up with picture or not?

Yes, the card must be seated properly.

Do you have another slot you can try it in?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

You need to try to finagle the metal piece in between the case and motherboard in order to get it seated in the slot. Keep trying to get it in, but be careful not to damage the connectors.

What kind of motherboard is it?

the metal bracket refered to often is slightly bent or doesn't fit the case quite right, adjustment with a pair of needle nose pliers is needed, just be careful to securely hold the back of the card so you don't damage the solder connections

usually a little hand finger pressure will do the job, pliers for extreme cases only

I picked up some rma vid cards real cheap that way

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

The computer P.O.S.T ok? Make sure the card is seated completely and that no contacts were damaged on prior attempts. Make sure the ram is seated completely. Still nothing, remove all components accept the ram, video and processor and see if you can get a signal then.
