    I just replaced my motherboard from an ASUS P8Z68 to a Gigabyte Z77x-UD3H hoping this would fix the issue, but it hasn't
    I have my video card in the PCIe slot, and most of the time when I turn on my computer, the computer boots up, but the screen is blank/black/in standby.
    I have tried HDMI and DVI to the video card. I am forced to shut down the computer, multiple times, before the card is recognized on bootup.
    When the screen is blank/black/in standby, I can't do anything. I updated the bios on the video card, but didn't fix the issue.
    Please help, or offer some suggestions. The video card is 2 years old, and I feel like I may need to replace it if I don't get this issue fixed!
