Hello everyone.

I'm currently building a new computer, with all the hardware already installed.
Hardware specs:
Mobo - evga B360
GPU: evga GTX 1070 8g
Processor: i5 9600k
PSU- evga 1000 watt.
Case dg84.

The computer is able to start up fine when plugged in: the Mobo light turns on, cpu fan and such is running, and the gpu's light turns on and it's fans start alternatingly cycling.

However, upon connecting the monitor to the GPU, the monitor receives no signal. There doesn't seem to be a way to plug in the monitor to the Mobo, since the Mobo doesn't have any video connectors on it (no HDMI/dvi/vga).

So, how do I get the video signal to work? I read that the 1070 only works if it's drivers are installed, and that you need to connect the Mobo to the monitor first to get those drivers installed. But, I don't see how I can possibly do that, since there's no ports for monitor cables on the Mobo.

That is false. Try all the display outputs available on the card.

None are working on the monitor I have. Are the fans on the GPU supposed to be stuttering? The monitor trys to get a signal for about 15s but nothing happens.

Yes, it's normal for them to twitch after they turn off. What monitor do you own?

Sorry, I was unclear. The fans are alternatingly twitching while the computer is powered on, which seems to be cause for alarm. I have an Acer 21 inch monitor that only has dvi and VGA inputs. I don't have any way to test out the other outputs.

Is the issue that the monitor and it's cable is only a single link dvi, and the gtx 1070 is only compatible with HDMI/dual dvi?

Yeah, I don't think twitching like that should be occurring, but I could be wrong. You can use a single link cable in a dual link port, so that isn't the issue. I'd suggest trying another dvi cable, or even testing the card in another pc where you can check the other outputs out as the dvi output may be shot.

Im going to buy a new monitor in the morning (since it's been long overdue for a new one), and test the HDMI/DVI on that.
The fan stuttering is somewhat like this: (this forum wont let me link youtube videos, but I'll write out the video extension)
2v3i-EIYmHs

Except on my card, one fan will click and turn about 1/4 a revolution then stop, then the other fan will click 3s later and do a 1/4 revolution then stop, then the first will do that, then the second, etc etc until the computer is turned off.

If the new monitor doesn't work tomorrow with either input, would it be safe to say that something is wrong with the graphics card, and i should return and get a new one?

If the card doesn't work on hdmi, or any of the display port outputs I would return it.

I'm guessing you already tried to reseat the power cables & card as well?

I did, everything seems to be seated ok. The Mobo and cables are all in place and good to go and the GPU lights up just fine.

So i got the new monitor (AOC C24G1), and tested all the ports on the card (display and HDMI) and still no signal from all of them.

I would say it's time to return the card. Normally you should get some kind of signal to the monitor if it's working correctly. As for the fans I am not that worried about them since the system turns on and the fans turn to make sure the graphics card doesn't need cooling then they stop since it doesn't need it since no games are running. Of course all that is kind of moot since if the card isn't sending a display signal to the monitor it needs to be returned anyway.

I just got off phone with evga tech support after testing all the ports (resulting in no display) He said the fans strange spinning and clicking is because the GPU is broken.

Hey, I don't mean to necropost, but I am unable to send PM's yet and I have a question before I make a purchase.
I returned the GPU and am waiting for the refund to come through from amazon before I get another. However, I have a copy of win10 and a new SSD on the way to become this new builds main drive and OS. The processor has a built in GPU, but the B360 does not have its own HDMI/DisplayPorts. Is it possible for me to buy a USB3-Displayport or USB3-HDMI adaptor, and hook that up to the mobo's 3.0 slots and use that to boot to BIOS and then install windows onto there? Or do those kinds of adaptors only work once a copy of windows is actually installed?

Re: Technical help with getting B360 to boot to BIOS 2019/08/03 07:01:36 (permalink)
So i got the new graphics card, same one, installed and plugged it in with none of the tech problems of the last one. (Same card, the 1070). There is still no display on the monitor using any of the ports. What do I do next?


Ed: i don't have either the ssd or the DVD drive connected to the motherboard: all I have the is the Mobo, it's ram, the CPU and it's cooler, and the GPU connected. All of them are brand new out of the box and are seemingly working properly. The new graphics card is functioning as intended, yet the display is not getting a signal from bios through the GPU that is hooked up to the Mobo. The Mobo has no ports itself so that's a no go.

On startup the Mobo DOES NOT beep. However the mobos startup light does turn on (the one in front of the 24 pin power).


2nd edit: it displayed to the monitor with the message "please power down and connect the PCIe power cables for this graphics card". I am using the VGA GQ 8 pin to 2x(6+2) pin cables that came with the power supply to connect the GPU to the power. The cable that came with the GPU isn't long enough to work on it's own. I have the 8 pin plugged into the gpu and the 6 pins plugged into the VGA 1 and VGA 4 slots. The +2s are disconnected.

You have the cable connected the wrong way. The 6+2 is suppose to go into your gpu and the solid 8-pin is suppose to go into the psu.

Re: Technical help with getting B360 to boot to BIOS 2019/08/03 15:03:51 (permalink)
Really? That seems confusing to me since the GPU came with a supplemental power adaptor that iscan 8 to (2x6) cable, I assumed that meant to connect the 8 pin to the GPU and the 6 pins to the PSU. I don't see how it's supposed to be an 8 pin to 8 pin connector, and the card manual that came with it is very unclear about the arrangement.


Edit: so, to clarify, the gtx 1070 SC has a single 8 pin power supply. My PSU came with a bunch of 8+ 2X(6+2). So what I should do is plug in the 8 pin part of the cable to the PSU, and then one of the 6+2 to the GPU with the 2 pin connected, and just leave the other 6+2 dangling?

I was able to boot the bios to the USB and it began installing win 10: I selected the 64 bit option. Afterwards, it began preparing files and loaded that load bar very quickly. It then went back to the bios load screen and is now stuck with a loading ring that's not moving. Is that supposed to happen? I think it's frozen and not sure why.
