Default 7F Error EVGA x58 sli 3

Hey guys, I am currently trying to put together a system with an EVGA x58 board. Firstly, it won't boot up whatsoever with the graphics card in. When I take it out it boots but I get stuck with a 7F error. Any ideas? I am thinking possibly the GPU is dead.

Sounds like a dead GPU. Got another system to try it in?

Does the board make beeps when codes 25/26 are displayed? This is the initialize GPU phase.

Found this:

"7F means it's just waiting for input from you because either the settings have reset or you have a keyboard error, if you haven't excluded that in the BIOS.

Now, if you get a 7F code with a graphics card installed and you don't get any picture, then that means your card didn't initialize"

It beeps right at 26. A long and then 2 short. I guess I may have to drive all the way home and try it in my PC. But it only boots up when the GPU is not in the PC and then it goes to the 7F error.

I had a similar error with a setup recently, turns out one of the goldfingers on the pcb was broken off. Card worked fine @ 4x though oddly enough.
