did you connect the monitor to the motherdboard or the graphics card. you need to disable onboard graphics before using a separate graphics acrd

Why are you using new posts keep to the same one otherwise we won't know what suggestions have been made previously and theres a 200 post limit at the moment so you're pushing threads off the list by reposting
