Ok, so, New to the Forum, short time reader. In need of big help (GPU not posting or being found by bios)
I recently upgraded my pc with some fans and extra bits, and in doing so the GPU has stopped working.
CPU : Intel I5-7400 cpu 3.00GHz
Mobo : Asus Prime B250M-A Micro ATX LGA1151
RAM : HyperX Fury DDR4 2x8 gb (16gb)
GPU : Gigabyte geforce G1 1060 6gb PCIe16
PSU : Thermaltake Litepower 550W
Storage : Samsung evo 860 m.2 sata 1tb, Kingston 120gb ssd, WD HDD 2tb, some random 500gb HDD that mum has stuff on
Case : Coolermaster masterbox 5
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster i71C
Case Fans : Coolermaster 120mm rgb (x3) (back exhaust, top exhaust, front vent)
Coolermaster RGB controller
Diskdrive : Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-218L
Windows 10 home 64x : build 18363
Nvidia geforce : it wont let my check, and it refuses to update
BIOS : Prime b250m-a-asus-1205
So today (31/3) my RGB controller and addressable 40cm fan cables arrived and I set out to upgrade my PC to completion. (I had also recently installed an M.2 and 2 case fans). So around 2 week ago I installed 2 RGB fans (replacing the preinstalled case fan) and one above my mobo (as it diddnt reach the front of the case) and also an M.2 as my SSD was just about full. So I had no problems installing any of those, computer booted no dramas. Used Samsungs programme to migrate data from one device to another; in order to change my C drive to the M.2 (from the SSD). This was done roughly around the 14th of March, on the 16th I got home from work excited to play the new DOOM, to find that my Computer was booting to a blackscreen with just CMD open. I tried everything under the sun to resolve it. Nothing worked. So I gave up, as I had no backups to revert to or my usb with my boot drive on it.
Now forward to the 31st, my extra parts arrived. I Installed a fan in the front of my PC, Installed a new fan (removing the stock intel fan) onto my CPU, and attached them all to my new RGB controller. Installed my mums HDD into one of the bays and used an old sata cable to connect it to my motherboard. Also installed the diskdrive from that old computer into my one (also with one of the old sata cables). After cable managing everything to the best of my ability and putting the case back together, I booted it up; onto a screen through my motherboard output. Outputs, same CMD issue, run explorer, go into my explorer: HDD is working, Disk drive is working, RGB fans are going nuts with their colours. Everything is well. I was a very happy camper.
I took my computer back to my room, set up my desk, plugged 2 screens into my Motherboard (VGA, DVI-I) and my main screen into my GPU (DVI-I). And I boot up my computer, but my main screen (which goes into my GPU) has no post. But my GPU's RGB fan stop button is working and the fans are runnning.
Now in order of what I did next:
Uninstalled the HDD from mother board and disconnected power cables; Nothing happened
Uninstalled the Disk drive from mother board and disconnect power cables; Nothing happened
Disconnected the rgb controller from mother board; Nothing happened
Disconnected the cable splitter for my case fans from the top of my motherboard; Nothing happened
Now I started to freak right out
Starting looking up solutions, most were things that any sane person would do (check if the cable was in correctly, check if the computer was actually plugged in, restart the computer...),
NCIX recommended resetting CMOS, so I shorted the contacts and booted my computer, re-set up everything: Nothing
I tried updating windows; latest update already
I tried updating Bios, Nothing
I checked if the cable above my CPU was loose; It wasnt
I checked to see if the GPU was loose; It wasnt
I took the GPU out and put it back in, Nothing
I have tried everything I can think of, my computer wont pick it up. And im ready to just cry, as I am in Isolation for my health and for my families health I cant exactly go out to my Centercom (I live in Australia) and get it checked out. And I really don't feel like fawking out $900 on a new GPU
So in short, help me please. I am lost and I really want to play DOOM.
Thanks for reading and all, I understand its a big thread and I really need the help.
Photo attached of GPU lit up(and new fans :D), Id take more of my computer but I cannot be bothered taking it all apart again to take photos, plus its late and I need sleep.
