Can you link to the page where you bought it?

There are a LOT of things sold on Amazon, that is NOT sold BY Amazon. Much like eBay, third party sellers have to be carefully vetted on Amazon because there is just as much chance of getting a fake or faulty product through one of them as there is through an eBay seller.

We can look at the power supply after we figure out a few other things.

What is the FULL model number of your prebuilt system? There should be a sticker on the case somewhere that lists the full model, or sub model, or express service tag, that will help to identify the exact components used in this build including the CPU and motherboard.

WHICH slot do you have the graphics card installed in?
There's a GPU Tweak II DVD thing but I don't know where it went if I found that will it help solve my case??

I'll tell you what, if you just bought this card, supposedly new, I'd return it. I can see signs that the card has been used before. There are scratches all over the fan housing and that indicates to me that this card has been used and returned or is a fraudulent Amazon seller trying to sell off a dead card.

Well, if it was working previously, and then just stopped working, then I'd say the card died. If you bought it new, then it should be under warranty. I'd return it to the manufacturer. You can start an RMA though their website if you have the original purchase information. Otherwise, I'd say it's time for a new card. Drivers or GPU tweakII stuff, don't have anything to do with their not being a signal at all. So if you've tried different cables, a different monitor and maybe a different power supply to test with, then there's not much else left to test.

Did this card work previously in this system? Or have you had it since January but never tried it until now?
