No Display on graphics card

Pny Geforce 8600 gt video card
December 9, 2009 at 13:36:57
Specs: Windows XP
I recently purchased a 8600 gt off newegg.ca, I am using a Gateway gt5082 with INTEGRATED GRAPHICS 6100. I place the card in the pcie slot and the fan starts working, but I get no display

BEFORE YOU ALL START TELLING ME " its the monitor, try the bios, try different card," I have done all of those, diferent monitor, making sure all the bios and motheboard are up to date and swtiched to pcie display, did all of them and nothing so far, (the PSU is fine!)

I would like a REASONABLE answer

"I would like a REASONABLE answer"

Then be reasonable when posting your question.

"the PSU is fine!"

What does that mean? I have a 250W PSU in an old system & it's fine too, but it wouldn't run an 8600GT. You have to be more specific...make/model/wattage & amperage specs, especially the +12v rail. It's not a Bestec, is it?

Is there a setting in the BIOS to disable the onboard video? Shared RAM setting? Did you test the card in another system?

350 W psu, its not a bestec, i dont think I can disable the onboard in bios because its a crappy bios (I GOT ALL UPDATES) whats shared ram setting? and yes I have tested the card in another system and it worked.

You still didn't list the make/model & amperage specs for the PSU.

Open the case and look at the label on the psu. It will list the amperage / make and Model. Pay attention to the amperage on the 12 volt rails.

Well, I fixed the problem.. It wasn't full plugged in. Just SOME of the pcie connecters were plugged in, just enough to make the fan work, the other parts (the parts that recognize the card weren't plugged in) so for any of you who have the same problem. make sure ITS FULLY plugged in
