I'm trying to upgrade my MOBO to get the use of the SATA 6GB and the USB 3.0 speeds along with many others so i got the Gigabyte 970A-UD3 to replace my older ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO. So it took me about 4 hours to carefully remove/dissasemble and reassemble the two MOBO's and now i do not get any video when i turn on the system :pfff: I am running
WIN7 64bit HomePremium ,

G.SKILL F3-12800CL9Q-16GBRL memory,

SAPPHIRE 100282-3SR Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity,

Rosewill Xtreme Series RX750-D-B 750W Continuous @40°C ,80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready CrossFire Ready PowerSupply,

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner - Bulk SATA WH10LS30 LightScribe Support

Please help me, i'm thinking because i had the system in place with a MOBO that has onboard graphics and just removed everything and stuck it on this board that comes without onboard graphics that i am not getting picture...i am trying to use the HDMI on my GPU to go thru my Yamaha AV Reciever- RX-V867 and then to my Panasonic TC-P65VT30 plasma tv all monster HDMI 1.4v...
I'm scratching my head here :(

I would hook up your tv directly to your GPU using an HDMI cable and verify that it's not your video card. If you get picture, then I would figure out if something is going wrong with routing the HDMI cable through your receiver. On board video wouldn't have anything to do with your problem so long as your using your GPU.

Rage33,
Tried that just now and still got no video...you think the graphics card went up between MOBO swaps? i had them on antistat pad and i wore a wrist strap...I'm going over all connections again now. Thanks for your advice!
