Good morning,

I recently switched to a monitor I previously used as recently as a week ago. It is a G-Sync monitor with a DP cord, and for whatever reason I am not getting a difnal. It just says "Entering Power Save Mode" on my screen when the PC is on.

I admittedly am not the most informed person when it comes to hardware, but I do believe my cords are plugged in correctly. But just to be sure, I have uploaded two pics to imgur:

The two thickest cords there are my DP Cord and then the one that plugs into the USB from the monitor (I'm not sure what that cord is).

Any help would be appreciated!

Welcome to PCHF bllins,

Can I ask if you have both an add on video card and integrated graphics, I could be mistaken but it looks to me that you have both but your video cable is not connected to the add on video card and is connected to a port on the MB.
