If its coming from an HDD it could indicate a failure about to happen. Just keep that in mind. I still think its either a fan somewhere, or something else that isn't occurring everytime your computer powers up.



I don't think it's the HDD as it's not making the renown click of death. And it's more of a tick noise. It ONLY occurs when the video cards are in the PC though. IF it was the HDD wouldn't it do it without the graphic cards?

Also why did it only start ticking with my other graphic card only AFTER it was updated?

Maybe you should think of checking your PSU voltage, since (unless I am wrong) your two PCI-E cards draw their power directly from the motherboard (no Supplementary Power Connectors). It gets power enough to run but not enough to initiate video

What is the brand and model number of your PSU

I have a CORSAIR Gaming Series GS700 700W ATX12V v2.3 80

The PSU shouldn't be the problem since it was working before. Why would it suddenly stop properly supplying the video cards?

It might not be the problem but cost nothing to verify, Download CPUID Harware Monitor and verify it. All things break down, good one day bad the other. So never assume because it worked the previous time that it means it is working now.

Possible reasons why a video card does not display any video

Video card
1- Video card is defective
2- Video card as not enough power to initiate video
3- Video card is not seated properly
4- The fan is not working making it overheat

Motherboard
1- Motherboard PCI-E slot is defective
2- Motherboard BIOS setting is wrong

PSU
1- The PSU is not strong enough
2- The PSU gives the improper voltage

Downloaded CPUID, what did you want me to verify with it?

But I will say I find it odd that it wouldn't recognize my old graphic card either, which was working before I upgraded.

Unless I'm so unlucky to have both cards break.

You have to check for your Voltage and see if they look normal, if not sure make a print screen of it go to Paint press Ctrl/V while paint is open and you should see your print screen, save it as a JPG and post it here.

If it is not your PSU then my guess is that it is your PCI-E slot, but will not be sure until you test your card in another computer

All seem good for your PSU

Your last option is to try your Video Card in another computer, if they do not work in another computer then you know it's the card, if they work then it is your PCI-E slot that is the culprit.

I know this is an older post, but I am having the same issues with my PC.  Was a resolution ever discovered?

Just some additional details..I did not move my PC.  The DVI ports were working one day, then they suddenly weren't.  I do believe this behavior coincides with an update to Windows 8.1, but I cannot be sure.
 
Here is my information:
 
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro
Processor: AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+
RAM: 4.00 GB
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 430, 1 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 305234 MB, Free - 112205 MB;
Motherboard: GT5414E
 
All updates and drivers are current.
 
All fans are running, as you can see here in the CPUID output:
 
  Capture.JPG
 
The NVIDIA Control Panel can see the card just fine:
 
Operating System: Windows 8.1 Pro, 64-bit
DirectX version: 11.0 
GPU processor: GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Driver version: 307.74
DirectX support: 9.0c
Core clock: 425 MHz 
Memory data rate: 1064 MHz
Memory interface: 32-bit 
Total available graphics memory: 1855 MB
Dedicated video memory: 128 MB DDR1
System video memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 1727 MB
Video BIOS version: 5.61.32.20.01
IRQ: 22
Bus: FPCI
 
Also, NVIDIA recognizes every monitor I test in the VGA port.
 
However, it does not recognize any monitor plugged into either DVI port.  Also, Device Manager does not recognize any monitor connected to the DVI ports.

Please do not post inside another members topic, your computer issue/s may appear to be the same but be completely different + your request for assistance may be overlooked as staff and members will check a topic that has yet to receive a reply but they may not if it appears that assistance has already been offered to the OP.

 

Please start your own topic and we will be happy to assist you there, it will be helpful if you can provide the brand and model name or number of the PSU.
