You are posting in a hardware forum and no one [other than you] has any idea what hardware you are running. Post ALL of your exact system specs. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

That motherboard is 7yr old. I assume these are used parts. Did you ever actually see this board work with a real video card installed?

Next when you install the video card, you are connecting the monitor to the video card and NOT the onboard port on the motherboard, correct?

The specs for your motherboard show the pci-e 16 slot is shared with the first pci-e 1 slot. Do you have anything in the first pci-e 1 slot?

One other thing I notice; you have a very low quality pw supply. While that is probably not causing your current issue, I would highly advise you to install a quality pw supply.

These are used parts, however the mother board has been tested with other graphics cards and it seems to be that card that is the issue.

Also thankyou for the advice about the PSU as i will upgrade that next as my budget is quite limited its a as of when i have the money project.
