Just completed my new Z690 build, but am having an issue with video signal.

Everything boots up, there's power to the GPU as fans are spinning and the RGB lights are on. I've tried the following:

1. Updated BIOS
2. Made sure the GPU was seated properly in the motherboard
3. Power connectors are good
4. I get signal when using the integrated Intel graphics

Tried installing the drivers, but it's not recognizing the 3080 Ti.

Help, please!

    Any little fixed Red LED lights on over top of the PCI-E plugs on the Card?
     
    If not, have you tried different input cables to monitor?
    You double checked within BIOS that the Z690 Board can actually "recognize" that there is a GPU in PCI-E_1 and that iGPU hasnt been selected as default in BIOS?
     
    What Z690 Mobo?

    Yes - a red light is on over the very left 8 pin GPU power connector. I'm still pretty new to this, but did try to look around in the BIOS for anything, but not really sure what to look for.

    If your PC fully boots w no signal and a fixed red LED light over a PCI-E power connector means that connector is not getting power or there is a fault within the power circuit associated w that pci-e power plug...double check that the pci-e power connector is fully seated at both the GPU end as well as the psu end.

    make sure you are using 3 power cables and dont use the pig tale from one of them.

    I feel really dumb. I forgot to plug one of the PCIE cables into the PSU. I did that, and now the red light is gone.

    However...still no video signal. UGH

    Is the GPU connected with a DP cable? if so try unplugging the monitor from the wall socket for a minute and see if that fixes it. Its a common thing that happens some time to time to DP cables.

    What PSU model and make are you using? Most TVs used in the home have an HDMI cable. Borrow the cable and connect it to the monitor and video card to see if there is a cable issue.

    Fixed the issue - the BIOS had the default graphics set to CPU. I changed it to PCIE and we're up and running!

    Thanks all!

    At least it was user error and not the GPU. I did that myself a couple months back when I replaced stock PSU cables with individually-sleeved ones. One of the PCI-E connectors on the PSU side wasn’t snapped into place l came to find out, and it must have jostled loose when I tucked away the “rat’s nest.” Just had to securely plug it in was all it boiled down to. Anyway, glad you got it working. Enjoy!

    Yeah this has happened to me as well in the past.....PCI-E power cable becoming slightly dislodged at the psu....fingers in the rats nest !!

    And I come from a time of PCI then AGP GPU's ;)
    We're old !!! ;) ....but wise ;)
     
    I'm just glad the new replacement passed all of my testing, now in 4 weeks get the Water Block installed and cross my fingers its a "keeper" and lasts as long as my other Evga GPU's....as in forever :)
    Perhaps the stars will align and I get some DDR5 RAM sometime in Dec!

    I am happy that Z690 is available for DDR4 which eliminates the problem of DDR5 being backordered
     
    This is an option for PCIe 5.0 and 4x M.2 slots

    Only some Boards can utilize DDR4.....I always go with either Asus Maximus Extreme or Apex, they are only compatible w DDR5....its a whole new platform so Im all in....not sticking to an "old tech" DDR4 based Mobo, although a good option I suppose, but once we see DDR5 available in 6000 Mhz + I would not want to have to purchase yet another Mobo.....
     
    Once a new Memory standard is out I go with it....thru DDR2 to DDR3...DDR3 to DDR4 and now to DDR5.

    It may be a while for DDR5 to become available in volume. The timings of existing part numbers is pretty poor too.
     
    The real advantage of Alder Laker is PCIe 5 and lots of M.2 slots to expand game storage with

    Yep for sure regarding M.2 options....I would think by the New Year we will start to see some great DDR5 availability....think I will have my hands on a 32g kit of Kingston Fury 5200 C40 in 2 weeks, that will hold me over until some GSkill or Dominators in the 5800 + C36 are available ;)
    GSkill is already "featuring" 6100 to 7000 Mhz RAM kits, just a matter of time!

    Unfortunately it may take more than a few months for DDR5 stock to increase.  The problem isn't the memory modules but the PMIC for the ram.  PMICs have been in very short supply for most of 2021.  DDR5 is just the latest in a long line of components that need them.  (Source ref DDR5: wccftech, ref PMICs in general: Electronics-sourcing)

    This is what happens when the world relies on just a handful of fabricators to supply everyone. Imagine if there was only three or four automobile manufacturing plants worldwide.

    Last I heard DDR5 will not be hard to find for at least the next 35 weeks.  I forgot who it was (be it hardware unboxed or another well-known youtuber), but one major manufacturer told them they only expect to have 300 kits total available all of next year.  I usually get 4-5 years out of a PC before I do a MB upgrade and I'm at the mark now.  I have made to move to the LGA 1700 socket with DDR4.  DDR4 will be good until my next MB upgrade.

    Last I heard DDR5 will not be hard to find for at least the next 35 weeks.  I forgot who it was (be it hardware unboxed or another well-known youtuber), but one major manufacturer told them they only expect to have 300 kits total available all of next year.  I usually get 4-5 years out of a PC before I do a MB upgrade and I'm at the mark now.  I have made to move to the LGA 1700 socket with DDR4.  DDR4 will be good until my next MB upgrade.

    Hopefully it’s not a Gigabyte Z690 DDR4 board. I speak from experience when I say they’re in dire need of a BIOS revision that better supports DDR4. As for DDR5, it is what it is, and I stand by my statement about just a couple of companies supplying the whole world for such stuff. I’m still going to strive to get my hands on DDR5, but I’m not getting my hopes up.

    Yeah, I will not own anything Gigabyte or ASRock.  ASRock from personal experiences and Gigabyte from what I have read with other people.  I usually stick with ASUS as everything I have owned from them has been great.  The ASUS MB I wanted was not available so I went with the MSI MPG Z690 Edge.  From what I have been reading, it's only MB that is working without any kind of issues right now.  This will be my first MSI product and hopefully it does me right.

    I’ve owned mostly MSI boards in the past. Their BIOS interface was decent, but almost all of them crapped out due to hardware failure. The only Asrock board I’ve owned had almost too simplistic a BIOS, but did right by me otherwise. As for Gigabyte boards, I’ve owned three, one being the Z690 Aorus Master that isn’t in use thanks to a lack of DDR5 memory. So far, the only complaint I have is that their Z690 DDR4 boards are problematic with memory, but that’s something a BIOS revision should fix down the road (hopefully not too far down). Haven’t owned an Asus board. In my opinion, they’re pricy compared with other brands for the same feature set. Kind of like “RGB tax” for fans and RAM, you’re paying extra for the Asus name.

    Side note: I like how we veered so far off course from the OP’s subject/intent. lol
