1st Build With Help-VGA Issues

  • 25 months ago

Hello there I built my first pc recently with my brother who has done them before. Ryzen 5 processor in strix x370 f gaming board I have a 550w power source and a 1070ti. The motherboard,ram,and video card all light up. CPU fan and case fan running. I am not sure if gpu fans spin at start although I think they do. Motherboard has orange indicator of working. However the top right led indicator is shining white signaling vga issues. I cannot get an hdmi signal from the card or back plate when card is disconnected. Thoughts here? Maybe a power cable wrong...although I thought I checked my ps and qs. Thanks.

Your CPU doesn't support integrated graphics, so your only graphics output will be from your GPU, make sure your HDMI/display port/dvi/etc is plugged into the gpu and not the motherboard. Additionally, make sure you plugged in the GPU power cables (some gpus can get their power from the motherboard but others, such as the 1070ti, need power cables from the PSU).

Sometimes new Ryzen based builds can take up to 5 mins first boot to figure out what they are doing, give it some time and see what it does
