Hi I've had the same graphics card for a few years and have lately been getting into problems with it. The other day I had a problem with RAM and the graphics card but that was resolved and now the graphics card is not working at all.

When I boot my computer with my graphics card I hear the windows start up through my speakers but the monitor is still reading no signal. I've tried, making sure it is in properly and everything, tried every solution I've seen so far.

When I boot up my computer with the terrible integrated graphics, it works fine so I know it probably isn't any of the other hardware because the motherboard and graphics card have been working together fine.

Rep to anyone who can lead me into the right direction. Nearly concluded to the graphics card being dead and replacing it.

What PSU do you have?
What GPU do you have?
What motherboard do you have?

Do you have another system around your home that you can install your GPU to see if it's working in another machine?

When you power up your PC, does the fans on the GPU spin, even at all? Also are their any lights or LED's on the card to indicate that is receiving power?

Have you also tried using a different 6/8/12 pin power connector? Is your PSU fully/semi modular? If so I would recommend changing the slot where you plug in the 6/8/12 pin connector if you can.

First off I highly recommend taking the GPU out of the PCIe slot, and making sure you firmly slot the card into the slot just to make sure it's seated right. I know you said you have done so already, but at this point you need to triple check. You probably know this, but make sure the monitor cables goes directly into the GPU, and not the motherboard.

Have you got another PCIe port on your motherboard that you can install the card in to see if you get a display? This will then helps us identify whether the card is faulty, or the PCIe slot.

Hope this helps.
