  1. Alright, so Ive gotten all my PC parts today from Newegg. It took me about a hour to assemble everything. I'm pretty sure i have everything fitted where it needs to be and as neat as possible. I'm positive i haven't fried anything because i kept making sure i was grounded and because the computer boots up fine lol, it just doesn't show up on my monitor i bought or my old one.

    So my first assumptions is somehow i have a bad GPU but idk it could be something else, thats why i am here. I would like to see what you all have to say about what could be the issue. I tried fitting the Card in my other PCIE express slots, also trying different VGA cables aswell as HDMI cables. I tested it on two different monitors. With all those things tried still no signal.

    I also thought it could be my board, but everything else seems to be working fine, all fans and LEDs work. My Optical drive comes out and my board has the green on light shinning. Also, connected my phone via usb and was able to charge, so im assuming those all work too.

    But anyways, Anyone have any ideas? all responses would be appreciated. The computer specs are listed below.

    Computer Specifications:
    Monitor: Acer AT3265 Black 32" 6.5ms HDMI LCD Monitor
    Optical Drive: Lite-On 24 X iHAS424-98 DVD
    Case: Rosewill ARMOR Gaming ATX mid Tower
    PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb (3.4GHz)
    GPU: SAPPHIRE 100312-1GSR Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-bit
    Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200

    Well I haven't gotten any replies yet but, i think i may have figured out my problem, Im thinking my GPU is incompatible with my MOBO somehow. Not sure why because in theory they should work, but who knows. Going to try a different card tomorrow.

    I'm still open to suggestions from you all : )

    Thanks in advance.

    *EDIT* Thread Now solved
