No signal on display when putting in new graphics card.

I looked around the internet and some people said my motherboard could still be looking for my old card and thats why it doesn't display on my monitor. They said I could possibly solve it through a CMOS reset by taking out the motherboard battery and putting it back in. Do you think this could possibly help my situation?

Processor: FX-4100

    I fixed the links now and I tried a CMOS reset and that didn't work either. But when I put my old video card I get a beep and my monitors light up, but when I put in my new graphics card I don't get the beep and my monitors don't turn on.
  3. It could very well be that the motherboard is the culprit as mobos from pre-built systems are not as upgradeable as mobos from Gigabyte, Asus, MSI or other manufacturers.
    Can you test the new card in a friends system? or take it back to the store you bought it at and ask them to test it.
    I personally think it's the board that won't support that card.

    really? I managed to put my old 7750 in there without any problems with the computer.
  5. Upgrade your motherboard's BIOS (software) with the latest one by downloading from the manufacturer's web site, and it should be fine. I just resolved the same issue today by upgrading my gigabyte motherboards bios using its @Bios utility. Just for note that I had AMD Radeon 7970 graphics card (if it helps).
