  2. make sure that you connect the 6 pin or 8 pin to the graphics card. if thats not the case, it might just be dead and you can call for support

    Can you see the graphics card being on? Do the fans spin?
    If that's not the case make sure it's fit in right into the socket (if it doesn't have a 6-pin PCI-E connector)

    If it is in fact running, make sure your monitors are correctly connected and that the computer POSTs succesfully.

    can confirm, if you never got a picture out of the card its not properly connected or damaged

    Anything yet? There's nothing you need to buy if you have the DVI-I Dual Link cable and the card. Few things to make sure of if you recently upgraded to this card:
    • The card is secured in the PCI-E slot
    • The DVI cable is secured on both ends, the card output and the monitor input
    • That you have enough power for the card. It's a common mistake to not buy a PSU that's not enough for a build. Not enough power can result in no signal, flashing, or any kind of weird picture from lost video data
    • Your card is actually running. Easily found out by watching the fan.

    Lastly, what does it look like when booting your PC? No signal at all every time? Or just sometimes there's no data? And what's your PSU wattage?
