Older NVIDIA cards not running on new components

I recently bought a new motherboard, processor, RAM and PSU. My friend had two graphics cards lying around (GTX 460 and a GTX 580), so i decided not to invest in a new one. The problem now is that neither of the graphics cards work in this new system (no BIOS or Windows, although I hear windows starting up from earphones). The monitor just shows "no signal" and then a blank screen. The GPUs work perfectly on an older PC with the same new PSU (cause they drain so much power ?), so working condition is not an issue. Old AMD cards on the other hand seem to work well in the new system (HD 6850 and HD 7750). I have tried updating all of the drivers, flashing bios, changing bios settings, but the computer doesn't recognize the NVIDIA GPUs. Are these GPUs just not compatible? Any ideas?

 

Specs:

Processor: AMD Athlon 200GE

Mobo: Asus PRIME A320M-K

RAM: Crucial 8GB DDR4 2400MHz

PSU: InWin GreenMe 650

When I first assembled the new system, then I used the GTX 460 and immediately got no signal. No drivers were installed whatsoever.

welcome to the Linus Tech Tips forums!

 

you are connecting the video out cable to the GPU(s) and not the motherboard?

as my gtx 570 works well on my r5 1600 (when connected to the GPU)

Thank You!

 

In all cases the cables were connected to graphics card outputs.

@mikey80 i urge you spend the money on a graphics card.

 

I have GTX 650 and i suffer a similar problem (except not on a new board), I actually leave my system running because Im afraid it wont come back on again...

 

have you tried restarting the computer 3-4 times in a row?

its about the only thing that worked for my GTX650, oh and its a bit more stable on win7. 

current main system:

motherboard : AMD FX 8320

ram : 16Gig

OS : Linux Mint 20 xfce kernel 5.4.0-26

Video Card : RX 550 4 GIG

Monitor: BENQ 21 inch

 

Desperately needs an updated system :(

Connect it to iuGPU and see if cards are detected properly in BIOS.
Try changing PCI-e speed in BIOS from 3.0 to 2.0,
Enable CSM Legacy mode for video/booting devices.

CPU : Xeon E5-1680 v2 @ 4,3 GHz + Hydronaut + TRVX + 2x Delta 38mm PWM
MB : Sabertooth X79 (BIOS 4801 + NVMe mod + uCode update)
RAM : 8x A-Data DDR3 XPG 2000X 2GB @ 1868MHz CL8.9.8.24 CR2T, Quad Channel.
GPU : ASUS GTX 1080 (FE)
M.2/HDD : Samsung SM961 256GB (NVMe/OS) + RAID0 2x WD10EZEX (rev. 2013) + HGST Ultrastar 7K6000 6TB

@cretsiah I know and I will ?. I just wanted to know if anyone was having the same sort of issues and cold explain why this i happening. I have tried the restarting method a bunch of times, but no success.

 

@agent_x007 I tried enabling/forcing CSM Legacy mode for all devices with no success. However, I could not find the PCI-e speed setting or any place that would show any information about GPU status.
