What do you mean? Doesn't the 290 have DVI?

Hey. Have you made sure that the PCI-Ex power cables are connected properly. What power supply are you using?

Do you have the drives installed? Can you use a different screen while configuring the drivers?

Any sign of life from the card its self? Lights or fans starting on it?

i know this sound cheesy, but did you browse thru the user manual to find if there's maybe a primary port or something like that, i remember a problem a while ago similar to that, but in my case it was due to the difference of DVI-I and DVI-D, try looking into that too.

good luck

Make sure you're looking at the right input for ex. the monitor I have has HDMI 1, hdmi 2 etc input so, if the gpu is connected to hdmi1 and you're looking at hdmi 2or dvi or something then corse it wont work. I'm pretty sure that not the case but it happened to me. And have you tried the monitor with other gpu's??  And try moving the mouse or click keys when powering up.

Go into your UEFI and make sure that PCIe is the default GPU source. If you have done this then RMA the CPU if not do it. 

 

I think i found a fix to your problem. Go here.....http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/115122-problem-connecting-monitor/  and scroll down to UEFI BIOS support and read what they put up. Now if you did your motherboard BIOS update and you still having this problem i would contact Sapphire.

Do you have onboard graphics? If so you might have to disable them in your BIOS. You shouldn't have to but it's something to troubleshoot

nope, dont have onboard graphic.. :-(

that's ok but the adapters can also be different, make sure that you use the right one, you can't connect a DVI-I adapter to a DVI-D, they have to be matching, and notice the difference between single and dual link DVI's.

both is DVI-D type, so it does not support VGA monitor right??
