I'd go back and double check everything. Make sure all the cables are connected and everything is secure. Also make sure the Dvi cable is secure on the back of the monitor and card. Also make sure the Dvi cable is plugged into the correct Dvi slot and not the 2nd monitor slot.

Is the card in the PCI-E slot closest to the CPU?

what psu do you have...? did you also rearrange the 6 pin plugs to the card...? maybe they're running on the same rail, have you tried to plug one in from one rail and the other one from a different rail...? if you just have one beefy rail on your psu disregard the question...

if the board you are using has integrated graphics try connecting the video cable to that as it could have become re enabled , then go into bios and turn it off

ok , well are you sure you are connecting the power on pins in the right combination

also just because the power supply seems to be working dosent mean it is ,

another thing are all the power supply cables connected the the mobo properly , there should be a 24pin one and a 4 pin connector
