So if you have been building this for a few years, have you been using it that entire time, or now just trying to use it?

If you have been using it then how did you have video output prior to buying a new video card then returning it and buying another and still no video output?

I'm assuming you also have the 8 pin cpu power plugged in on the top of the mobo, right?
Were you using another card that worked, or were you using the onboard video?
Have you tried the card in all 3 of the different PCI-E slots? Typically the top one is default, but it could be a bad slot. I know the top 2 PCI-e are 3.0 slots controlled by your CPU while the bottom PCI-e slot is a 2.0 controlled by the mobo chipset.

Have you plugged in the additional 8 pin power plug from your power supply to your video card? Without the additional power plugged in to the card it will not work, the most it will do if anything is make the fans spin and light up any possible led lights it may have.
Have you entered bios to make sure that the PCI-e slots are not disabled?
Have you tried to clear cmos/reset bios to the factory settings?

Have you updated/flashed bios to a updated version? That board is a few years old and there maybe something goofy with the default outdated bios that is not allowing a PCI-e 4.0 card work. I'm aware that a 4.0 card should work, at 3.0 or even 2.0 speeds on an older board but sometimes bios just have strange glitches like that.

These are a few things I would check/try that I can think of off the top of my head.

If your motherboard box says ready for ryzen second generation processors then that's your problem, you need to update BIOS which you can't without an older processor to boot and perform the update, easy way is asking a shop to do the update for you.

Homie start with the basics before you go crazy unless you've tried the basics already. Did you make sure to tell your BIOS to use the graphics card? Instead of your CPU built in GFX? Should check, see if it's "Onboard" or "AUTO" or something like that, and yeah do all the updates that you can. This would definitely be the issue if your onboard graphics works while the GPU won't. You can't really use both at once. That stuff should work together I think, I don't see why it wouldn't.

 

Also check if your BIOS has anything like "above 4g decoding" and "resizeable BAR" and see if changing those settings will help you. I had to go through that process with a card that had, I think, 12GB of RAM. If none of these things work then I'd probably start making sure everything is plugged in and powered correctly or something. 

 

Have you or anyone else changed anything in the BIOS/UEFI?
