go to bios, see about the vga initialization. put pci before peg, had that issue once or twice.

or auto if not already set.

do you get video with another card, begs the question? :)

Could be a dead board or a dead PCI-e lane, won't know until you test it more or give us more info.

ok so this is potentially not a gpu issue.

do you have the ram plugged in, properly?


if yes, all the power connectors on the motherboard are in the proper places properly hooked up?
