New video card no video

April 7, 2014 at 14:55:39
Specs: Windows 7, I-7 3770k 3.5 ghz / 12 gb
OK I'm at a loss. I currently have an Asus P8Z68-V PRO motherboard with an I-7 3770k cpu (3.5 ghz) and a GTX 560 ti video card. I unplugged my computer and removed the 560 ti card to install a new 760 card. Immediately upon reboot, my computer turns on but displays no video. On a few occasions while trying to get this new card to work I have gotten a blinking cursor but that's all. The card is good, I tried it in a different computer and was able to get video and my old 560 still works. I have tried everything I can think of to get this beast working to no avail. My PSU is a CoolerMaster 750 watt Bronze edition so it SHOULD be well able to handle this card.

Was a CD included, with the card? If not, can you boot to VGA mode & try to download the driver from the net?

This should be your driver:
http://www.nvidia.com/download/driv...
Note, requires 8pin PCIe power connector plus:
500 watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 30 amps on the +12 volt rail.
If this is your power supply: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicat... then it does have a 60Amp 12 Volt Rail. This assumes that it is up to the listed specs. If it is not the one you have, read the specs off the label on the power supply for the 12Volt rail. Are you sure that the 8pin connector is connected? Have you tried another connector in case the one has bad wiring? Have you tried reseating the video card to be sure that it is fully inserted?

The card did indeed include a disc although I didn't use it because I always get my video drivers direct from Nvidia's website so they're up to date. Nvidia won't let me install the driver without that card being installed though (it does a compatibility check) but when the card is inserted I can't even get into the bios.

I'm pretty sure that link is my power supply. The card has a 3 pin and a 4 pin PCIE power connection and I have made sure it is plugged in properly and even tried using the second pcie power cable just in case. Then I tried using the 3 prong on one and 4 prong on the other. Again, just in case. The card has been inserted and removed many times, each time I'm certain it's set correctly.

Note that you can bypass the NVidia scanner by entering your video card number and your OS and downloading, just do not use the scanner. The link I supplied above does work without the scan, I just assumed you have 64bit Windows 7, if not, you will need to go back and follow the process from scratch.
Note that if you boot to Safe Mode, Widows uses generic drivers so you can also make sure that the card itself works that way an also install the driver there at the same time.

I can't even get into safe mode with this card installed. I even tried having my harddrives unplugged when I installed the card and got the same result so I do not believe this is driver related.

Then that leaves the graphics card, the power supply, the motherboard, or the connection from the video card to the monitor.
Try borrowing a different power supply.
How are you connecting the monitor? If you are using a DVI to VGA adapter, does your video card support it? Not all do, and of those that do, only one of two ports support it (DVI-I vs DVI-D ports) on most cards. What ports do both your monitor and video card support in common? Have you tried a different port or at least a different cord/connector?
Have you tried installing the old driver and reinstalling the new driver before you swapped cards?
All references I see of the GTX 760 card is that it requires an 8 pin PCIe power connector.You MUST use one. See image:

I am using HDMI connection at home and used dvi on a monitor at work as well as dvi to vga. my power supply has 6+2 pin pcie power which totals 8 but is it possible that that isn't working correctly??

Possibly not powered correctly or the locking of the 6+2 is not true and only the 6pin part is fully inserted. Try resetting and/or another connector plus possibly a different power supply to be sure.
As noted the DVI to VGA does not work on all DVI ports so if this one in particular if that one, try a different one or straight to DVI or other port.
