I built my first pc and when I fired it up the fans worked and the heatsink was working but the graphics card was not. It just didn't seem like power was getting to it. Bios did not even come up. I have a 750W PSU so I'm know it is not under powered. Is there something I have messed up in the building process? I made sure that I was grounded so I do not think static electricity is the culprit.

I hope I haven't broken it before I even got to use it.


I FIXED IT. Nevermind. I did not plug in the alternate 8 pin power cord.
