  1. Video card power but fans not turning.


    If a modern video card is inserted into a motherboard's PCIe slot, and connected to power, but NOT connected to a screen, shouldn't its fans be spinning? Or would it sense that it was unable to output a signal and not fully turn on?
    The computer is on, of course, with the monitor getting it's signal from the board's VGA port.
    Perhaps a BIOS limitation?

    :)

    power on: nothing but fans turning . . .

    ok, here's a list of the hardware:

    ThermalTake's PurePower W0100RU
    ASUS p5b deluxe wifi/ap
    Intel CPU Core 2 Duo E6420
    OCZ OCZ28002048ELDCGE-K 2GB Kit DDR2-800 PC2-6400 Enhanced Latency Gold Edition
    eVGA e-GeForce 7300 GT PCI Express 256MB DDR2 Video Card
    Kingwin AS-3000 AquaStar Liquid Cooling System

    I turn her on and I get nothing but the whirring sounds of the fans spinning... (fans on the video card and the mobo)...

    both screens are black with "no signal" (i hooked both my lcds up to the dvi and vga outputs on the vc)

    and an interesting thing I noticed is that the "power led" on the asus board is blue when the supply is hooked up and when I hit the power button, the manual says it's supposed to turn red, which technically it does, but the blue doesnt go out... should it?

    this problem, whatever it is, is driving me nuts *Bang Head :banghead:. I'm out 200 bucks after replacing the mobo which I thought was busted, and now I'm suspecting the video card.

    no beeps on bootup whatsoever, which I cant understand...

    the video card is my #1 suspect at the moment... i bought it from zipzoomfly and it was on the top of the packaging with a box that looked a lil beat up.... cool huh?

    if anyone has any ideas or suggestions lemme know, other than those involving a baseball bat or .40 (which is what's currently on my mind)...

    thanks

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Video card power but fans not turning.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
