So I've built a new PC and had my fingers crossed that it would all work once it was fitted and plugged in. Sadly not.
Specs are as follows:
Graphics: Asustek EAH4850/HTDI/ 512MB (ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E)
Mobo: Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 600w W0103
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo processor E7300 2.66GHz 3M 1066MH
After putting it together and plugging everything in the back my monitor is black saying it cannot find a source. The fan on my Graphics card isnt spinning and there are two red lights on the back/top of the card.
Two things I am unsure of are: Does my mobo support my graphics card? I'm not 100% sure on this because my mobo doesnt say what PCI-e slots it has exactly and the graphics card says that it is PCI-e 2.0. After reading up on what the 2.0 is for, wikipedia told me that some cards dont work on 1.0 (or something).
(Did a bit of digging and found this cable to connect to the Mobo but plugging it in made no difference to the monitor) The second thing is that my mobo has an 8-pin power plug at the top and I cannot seem to find a plug on my PSU for it. However I have no idea if this is what could be causing my screen to not work.
Thanks for any help.
- Bit of extra searching about the red lights came up with
D1601 - Over temp protection enabled
D1602 - EXT 12V fault"
Both lights are on. Not looking good =(
