Monitor/gpu issue. I seriously don't know what to do anymore and my excitement for my new build is starting fading away.

Hey everyone.

My specs:
- AMD 5 Ryzen 2600
- NVIDIA GTX 1050 2gb
- AsRock B450 Pro4.

 

So, I finished building my PC today and I was about to boot it. 

 

First attempted failed. I realised my monitor had only a VGA cable while 1050 has only HDMI and DVI-D.

 

I bought a passive DVI-D to VGA adapter, same thing. "Check Signal Cable" box on the screen and below it "Analog".

I then tried to remove one stick of ram, check if everything is in place, re-apply gpu. Same thing.

 

Then I bought a DVI-D cable as some suggested me. Plugged it nicely to both monitor and graphics card. Same thing. Check Signal Cable error. 

 

I have spent whole day trying to figure out what's wrong and I seriously have no idea. When I turn PC on CPU fan and chassis fan are working normally.

 

I really ask for help at this point. I don't know what's wrong and I have spent a lot for cables and stuff already. I am seriously tired at this point. 

Please, anyone?

Did you cycle through the input options on the monitor? I have a few monitors here at work that aren't smart enough to know which connection is attached, and have to be manually switched from VGA (analogue) to DVI (digital)

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

There's no such thing. If it's a DVI-D to VGA adapter, it's active.

 

As @Radium_Angel said, try cycling manually through your monitor's inputs. Has the monitor ever worked for you, or did you buy it when you built this pc? Try using a different screen. If you can't get any screen to work, you might have a DOA card. Is the fan on the card spinning? Also, did you make sure every power cable is connected correctly, specifically your graphics card's 6 or 8pin connector (if it has one)?

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.
