Oh boy am I having some trouble...I have a Jaton Video-PX6000 PCI EXpres card...I installed it fine and I tried connecting monitor into video card but nothings views. Everything powers up even the fan on the video card. I don't know if there is a way to turn ON the pci express slot? or move around some jumpers...on the motherboard (ASUS A8N-E socket 939 for AMD) or...I have no idea....i'd appreciate it if anyone helped...thanks :tazz:

How old is your moniter?

Connect it then turn on your computer, if nothing happens, its the card or the moniter

future reference: dont buy generic

Well, it's a an old Dell 15" monitor...about 4 years old lol...is there like a stream on the motherboard for the video only? Maybe it blew out or something? Is that even possible? Thanks for the feedback guys...

I did a search on that video card and got nothing! are you sure thats the make/model?
your board should by default be set to a single video card setting, so it should at least give you standard VGA. you should at least be able to get into BIOS!
more info on your video card, plz.

edit- your monitor wont be causing a problem like this, not for initial power up display, etc.

thanx for the link. make sre you are plugged into the correct PCIE slot for single card functionality, and make sure the jumper or switch up in that area is set to single card mode (the default).

are you planning on going for the dual video card thing at some point? that board supports the nvidia linked card thing (SLI), but that card doesnt. your close...that card is a 6600, but the minimum card that supports SLI is a 6600GT.
if your planning on that, your best bet would be to upgrade this card now (assuming you just bought it, so exchange is easy). then you only would need to buy 1 card later, instead of 2.

if not, nevermind!

i got a 6600GT with 256mb RAM agp for 150 and pci-e for 130 on newegg, major upgrade for just a little extra. hey audio-link me to a duel graphics card hookup thread or somethin wouldja?
btw...is the screen just completely blank or does it show something? try getting a regular pci card from a friend or buy one fo like 20$ and see if that works. if it does...see my last post.

oh wow, my bad! AI was looking at the specs for a different mobo than you have. ignore all that I said about the dual graphics thing :tazz:

just to make sure, you have the card in the PCIEx16 slot right? it would be the first one, below the processor, but above the regular PCI slots.


nixx, what I know about nvidia SLI, I got from mobo manuals and the nvidia website.
