    I recently purchased a MSI P6N SLI motherboard, 2 gb of ADATA DDR2 800 ram, and a EVGA 7600GT PCI 16x. I put them together paired with a 3ghz Pentium D and got it to boot. all these items are compatible. However, the Video does not respond. My moniter remains in standby mode when I boot. I have tested a PCI card as well and it does not respond either. I have tried a new moniter that works and I have tried using the DVI output instead of VGA. I cannot do anything until I find a solution that I hope isn't RMAing the MOBO!

    If you know how to fix this please post a reply!
    thanks!

    I can't even get it to post so I can't install xp yet. I just bought all of this to build a new pc, I also got a new hard drive that has not been formatted. The problem is that no video is displayed on the screen

    it is a PCI 16x card. I have already tried a pci card that i have sitting around and I know that it works, but it didn't work either in my new pc.

    Have you tried that video card in another PC to see if it works......also have you tried a different slot if you have another one on that board

    Also get into bios and see if there is a setting for it.

    here are the usual keys for entering Bios to press on startup.

    • {Delete} (modern Award and AMI BIOSes)
    • {F2} (modern Phoenix BIOSes)
    • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{Esc}
    • {Ctrl}+{Esc}
    • {Alt}+{Esc}
    • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{S}
    • {F1}

    I do not have any other boards to test the new pci16x card in so i am unsure if the problem is the motherboard or the video card. I cannot get to the bios menu because nothing shows up on the screen when I boot the pc

    Hard to say if it could be the board or Video card........

    I would start from scratch and rebuild the PC again double checking everything........sometimes the video card needs power is the power connected to it.
