Windows 7: No signal problem with a GTX 1060 6GB

29 Apr 2018   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1
No signal problem with a GTX 1060 6GB

Hello, could you please take a look at my problem?
I would appreciate any ideas on fixing it...


Computer Type: Custom build desktop.

GPU: GTX 1060 6GB VRAM (KFA2 EX OC White)

CPU: 2500K (Tried both base frequency and OC to 4.00.)

Motherboard: Gigabyte z68p-ds3

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x 8GB 2133mhz running at around 1300mhz

PSU: Brand new Corsair RM650X (Replaced a failed older one a week ago)

Operating System & Version: Windows 7 64bit, clean install

GPU Drivers: 397.31 Clean install after DDU (upgraded from 650ti boost.

Description of Problem: Cannot get HDMI signal to my 4k TV (It displays "NO SIGNAL".) The TV is a Samsung MU6120 and supports up to 4k res. Ps4 Pro/Xbox 360/Snes work fine. Just upgraded from a GTX 650 TI BOOST that displayed fine on the TV even in 4k. The PC displays fine on my 1080p DELL S2715H monitor.

Troubleshooting: I've tried various options in NVIDIA Control like setting it to 4:2:2 or Limited RGB and nothing worked.

Tried rigorous detection. I'm not sure it did anything differently.

Tried 720p, 1080i, no luck.

Tried the same cable with my laptop, it worked fine.

Tried it on the integrated adapter's HDMI port, it worked fine (No 4k though).

The old 650 ti boost displayed fine. When plugged in via HDMI it would immediately use 4k res on the TV.

Tried booting the PC while connected to the TV, no signal.

Tried passing the signal through a HDMI splitter by KINIVO, works but supports only up to 1080p.

Tried TV options such as disabling UHD color, putting the source to "Game" and "PC". No luck...

The cable works fine with my PS3.

Not tried: Another HDMI cable on the TV. The PC is in another room, so I can use only that specific cable which is 3m long.

DVI cable. Don't have any, might buy one tomorrow.

Older drivers.

So, any ideas what that might be? )-:

Hi zero50,

I have noticed that you have not had any replies as of yet.
I don't know if I can help but I had a thought that might be worth a try!
Have you checked your TV to see if there is any updates or firmware updates?
I assume that you have checked that there are no updates available for your PC with regards to drivers etc?

I hope this helps!
