It really sound to me like a faulty video card. It works when plugging into the onboard but the add on card if powered correctly should work. I would place my bet on a bad card for sure. :thumbsup:

I've built 100's if not 1000's of computers over the past 15 plus years I have been doing this. Once in a while you get a faulty or failed part. Even with my present system I ordered 2 1 tb drives and a 500 gig drive for my OS's I have installed.
When I put it together I found one of the tb drives was dead and had to get a replacement from the dealer I bought the parts from.
Replacement of a video card is not hard as you see with reseating it. For the most part the system is workign but the faulty card. ;)

Possible causes is a heat issue or another hardware issue. I'm going to look at the heat first.

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Did you get a replacement GPU?

If the tech diagnoses a faulty part, you can still RMA it.

Was it physical damage that could be seen, like a bent pin?
Are you able to RMA IT?
