I live in europe and I just finished building my workstation and when I turn it on nothing appears on the monitor!!
(everything else seems fine, all the fans go on, hard drives, etc. and no warning beeps go on).
Im using a:
- Tyan K8W motherboard
- Antec 550W EPS12V power supply (changed it to 230v)
- 1x AMD opteron 250 (bought used on ebay)
- 2x 1gig 3200 samsung ram
- Nvidia Quadro 3000fx (bought used on ebay)
I closely examined what happens to the quadro card when I turn the power on. The small fan on the quadro doesn´t go on, but it “ticks” a little just when I turn the power button on.
Im using a DVI-to-VGA converter, because my 22" mitsubishi monitor is a few years old and doesn´t have a DVI.
Could it be that the Nvidia Quadro 3000fx is an AGP PRO 110W card?
The Tyan motherboard manual says: “You also have an opton of using an SSI V3.0 spec workstation power supply. This is only necessary when an AGP PRO 110W card is used. See www.ssiforum.org”
Is the Quadro card melfunctioned or is it just me?
