Answers :

Hi,

The problem might be with your monitor, please check it properly if it is okay and also try to check your system on another Monitor.

If your monitor is okay, then there are two possible causes:

1) There might be a problem with your slot on motherboard try to connect card with another one if your board have.

2) There must be a problem with your graphics card. If it has a warranty, do replace it ASAP.

If you have anything else to clear, please do share with me.

Kind Regards,
