I just got my new setup, and started installing everyting. When it was time to boot to check if I had done everyting correctly, the screen was black - "No cable signal / Check VGA Cable" Standard message when you have forgotten to plug the cable or it's very loose. But the cable is alright, so I guess there is someting wrong with the GFX. The fans are going and the leds are lit, so the motherboard looks OK? I have tested the card in both my PCI-E ports, no differents.
I have pluged in the "PCI-E 6pin" cable, and a 2pin ground cable to the card 8800GTS Asus 512mb.
This is not the first time i build my own PC, but the first time I'm working with PCI-E, thou there were no manual following with the GFX and this card is not even up on asus website I'm maybe missing someting?
I was also told it might be a ram issue, and I should try booting with only one stick. I did so, tried in every slot, but still the problem remains.
