Why is my GPU not giving a signal to my display? ?

If I unplug my gpu 6 pin cable and plug the vga cable into the motherboard, I do get an output. With my GPU, I just get a black screen and the motherboard doesn't beep no matter how much I wait. It beeps once with the onboard graphics.

The GPU works fine in another system (even under load). I even cleaned the RAM sticks and the RAM slots (it didn't help). 

What could be wrong? The PSU? The mobo's pcie slot? 

Specs: Motherboard: msi-760gma-p34 (fx) 

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 650 4 GB

RAM: 4GBx2 GOODRAM @ 1333Mhz

CPU: AMD FX-6350

PSU: FSP Group 500W

  • I've tried switching to PCI-E from Internal in the BIOS and that didn't help.

    Go to BIOS. There might be a setting that switches primary graphics from motherboard to GPU.

    Check your BIOS settings and make sure the default display is set to PCI-E. The manual for your motherboard is pretty poor, so I can't tell you exactly what the setting is called. Maybe 'Primary Graphics Adapter'?
