Hello all.

My problem is that when i connect my monitor to my GPU i get no signal but when i connect it to my motherboard i get a picture no problem. is there a advantage to having it connected to my GPU? i do play alot of games

My GPU is a AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT (Red Devil version)
My Monitor is a Acer Predator X34P UltraWide (3440x1440)

Thanks in advance.


We ask users to include the specs to their build in the body of a thread since sig space specs can and will change over time, rendering any suggsetions and possible solutions moot to the issue at hand and to the person in the same boat as you're in now.

PC Specs
Motherboard - ROG Strix X570-F Gaming I LOVE HALO GAMES!!!!!
CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
GPU - AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT (12gb)
RAM - Ballistix (12gb)
PSU - Corsair RM 750X

Is what you've listed in your sig space. To be blunt, you don't have an APU in that specs list, meaning you shouldn't be getting display output when connecting your display to your motherboard's display output ports. You sure you're referencing the right ports on your build?

Please include a picture to elaborate what/where things are plugged in on the rear I/O ports.
