No Signal On Monitor

  BigRik 20:06 15 Dec 2009

I'm trying to get my new system up and running, but I can't get a signal on the monitor.

I've checked the external connections and all is well, so I need to check the card is sitting properly.

However, I'm sure I should turn off the computer first, but I can't see anything to shut down properly, and I can't just switch it off can I?

If you have no Hard Drive Connected just hold the start switch in till it closes

Excellent, thanks woodchip. Now that's done, I'll check the card!

Card was in fine, and I checked connections to and from the card. Still nothing.

Took this monitor I'm now using upstairs and connected it to the new machine. Nothing.

Put the new monitor on this machine, and it works.

I've waited 9 weeks for the new computer, because of the lack of 5870 cards, and now I've got the machine with the card, chances I've got a duff card are.........

It may be the PSU thats no good

Have spoken with Mesh tech support today. The tower is going B2B to have the graphics card replaced.

I can't believe it. I'm gutted.

This is the PSU installed in the new system: click here.

Is it a Robin Reliant, a Rolls Royce or somewhere in between?

That's not a quality PSU brand & certainly not worth £80, e.g. £44 at click here for the same thing sounds about right. G

Hmmm, yes, I thought as much. Thanks Crossbow7.

This just gets better and better!!
