View Full Version : 6800 GT black screen boot

12-24-04, 10:40 AM
I recently switched motherboards from an Asus K8V SE Deluxe to an MSI K8N Neo Platinum and switched over all of my hardware (3400 AMD Athlon 754, Audigy 2 ZS, 2x512 Corsair DDR400). The only problem is that my Leadtek 6800 GT won't show up on my monitor. The rest of the computer always POSTs fine (no beeps) and does it's thing, but the only way that I can get video even temporarily is through the S-Video out the 6800 GT. Right now I am typing this on the computer in question using an old TNT2 Ultra, so I know it's the video card, but are there any other thoughts on this? RMA?

I have a gainward "Golden Sample" GT and mine works flawlessly. Hmmm... you got the extra power dongle connected? Check all your motherboard settings (on your old card)?? Does your monitor support DVI? Maybe your DVI to CRT adapter is bad? Very odd.
