  1. Yeah I've tried that multiple times. I still get the yellow light that turns on when plugged in.
  2. I installed a GTX 980 Ti today and after turning on the PC, I was only able to use my wifi. I've tried installing the Intel Gigabit Ethernet drivers from my motherboard support and through Intel's website and they both do not work. I will link the picture of the error that I get. I've also checked my Network Adapters through device manager and only seem to have drivers from my wifi card. I also do not have any "other devices" that are listed through device managers that could be the ethernet drivers. I figured that I could have maybe not uninstalled my previous gpu drivers successfully and it somehow interfered and caused this mess so I decided to wipe all my files on my SSD and I still can't seem to connect through ethernet. Specs Mobo: Asus Maximus Hero Vii Cpu: i7 4770K Gpu: Gtx 980 Ti Ram: 8 gb PSU: Corsair 760W SSD: Evo 860 Edit* After wiping my SSD and installing new drivers I ran into a problem downloading the chipset drivers. I will post a picture of the error but upon doing that I decided to just use the motherboard cd and install it from there and it did seem to work and shows me that my chipset is updated. At this point I'm just completely confused and have no idea how could this happen as I've always had my ethernet working with my gtx 1050 ti but upon switching to a gtx 980 ti today it somehow got completely rid of my Intel Ethernet drivers.

    No power after switching parts into a new case.

    Oh yes I've seen this post while trying to figure out a solution to this problem. Only thing is these people are still able to turn it on after a few tries and they didn't say if any of their fans were spinning or if the RGB lights were on. I've seen a photo with the mobo having the same solid red CPU light on with the RGB lights also on. Mine doesn't turn on at all. Could components actually cause the RGB lights to not go on?

    Will that tomorrow. For my specific motherboard? Would it be possible if you send me a link on this.

    Yes, I have been test booting outside of the case and been using a screw driver to turn it on. No fans spinning.

    If you're talking about the 20 Power pin on the motherboard to check on the PSU then yes. The PSU turned on and fan was spinning.

    Yes it is plugged in.
  8. I decided to switch my components into a bigger mid tower today and now I'm not getting any fans to spin or the RGB lights to even go on the Rog Strix Z270i. The only thing that seems to be powered on is the red light on the motherboard (will attach a picture) which the manual indicates is a CPU problem I believe. I've tried multiple methods with none of it working which I'll list, and I've just come to the conclusion that I some how fried my CPU which is just hard for me to believe since I just bought these parts a few weeks ago and haven't done much to my pc (No OC). Could it be a motherboard problem? even if it's still getting power for the red led. -Reapply thermal paste and reseat cpu cooler. (Even tried using stock cpu cooler.. yes I know) -Inserted one ram stick in each slot and used both sticks from the 8gb that I have. -Paperclip method on the PSU and it worked I've only tried to test boot with Motherboard, CPU, Ram, and PSU, so I haven't done anything with GPU and etc and my components are Mobo: Rog Strix Z270i CPU: i5 7500k CPU Cooler: Cryorig H7 Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8gb 4x2 GPU: Gtx 1060 PSU: Seasonic 550w

    Standard VGA Adapter

    Alright placing the ram in the 2nd and 4th slot seemed to keep the computer stable for him.

    Standard VGA Adapter

    Okay so he uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and it worked. The problem was that his pc froze and didn't want to boot with his ram. He took out the ram in the 3rd slot and now it's booting and working fine with only 1 stick of ram in the first slot. The only problem now is the ram issue. Is the motherboard causing this? and would installing the ram in the 2nd and 4th slot help?

    No, it is a 64 bit and the card is only has 4 gb of vram.

    Standard VGA Adapter

    Friend just went through a lot of troubleshooting to getting his computer to post with his new r9 380. His computer is now stable but with only 1 stick of ram inserted into his computer. Does anyone know if something is wrong with his motherboard or memory? He had both of his ram working when his GT 640 was installed. After installing all of the latest drivers it seems that windows detects his card also as a Standard VGA Adapter. Anyone know what the problem could be? He is always using a msi 970 g46-a motherboard with an AMD Phenom II X4 965 and EVGA GS 650w power supply.
  13. Okay well after he installed the drivers to his r9 380 his computer froze and he went to restart it. He received No Signal again and tried reinserting the ram but that didn't work either. So I had him try booting it with the ram in the 2nd slot and it worked. Any clue on why this is happening? Is it his mobo or memory? Also his display adapter is showing up as Standard VGA Adapter.

  15. Yeah I read that ram could have been the problem but I didn't even imagine that being the problem since he just had his computer working before he installed his new gpu so I thought there was no way ram could have been the issue. Thanks I've just been a very long time lurker and only posted a few times when my friends had problems.
