No video output from gpu after taking it out then putting back in

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I took my gpu out to take off my cpu fan and when I put all back in,  I started my pc up and got no output and after a couple of minutes it turns off and turns back on again. The gpu fans start then turn off after a few minutes. 

 

Please help I'm starting to feel sick over this as I don't have a lot of money

This might sounds stupid, but you could try pulling it out and putting it back in, again.

Does your motherboard have a different PCIe slot that you can put the GPU in? The slot could have died. Are you sure the GPU power cables are in all the way?

What are the specs of the system please. Specifically the Mainboard and CPU. It could just be running on iGPU.

Have you connected the power cables to the GPU?

Gigabyte ga z170 hd3 ddr3 and a Intel i5 6600k 3.5ghz. The power cables are plugged in. My gpu is a msi armor 1060 6gb

Put the monitor cable into the motherboard. Do you get an image then?

Do you get video without the graphics card?

Nope. So is it a motherboard issue? Also, around every 10 or more seconds the orange led 'strip' on my motherboard blinks.

Take out the GPU, then try the same thing. Connecting the monitor to the motherboard.

What else did you do, besides take out the GPU. You mention taking out the CPU fan. Explain in detail what you did.

To take out my fan I needed to take my ram out. (My heat sink 'block' was dusty so I blow it all out).

Oh, in that case, remove and put the RAM back...sometimes the slots are picky.

Make sure they're in the proper slots (consult the manual of the motherboard). And pressed all the way down. It can sometimes take more force than you think. (but don't overdo it ofcourse). JUST taking off the fan shouldn't cause any issues. Unless you took out the entire heatsink, and didn't repaste it.

Did you use an ESD strap? ya could have nuked something. Start swapping out parts (if you have any) to see what may or may not be broke. You could also try one stick of ram (one at a time), you could have a dead stick or slot.

Reset cmos and try?

 

What PSU do you have?

I reset the thing and the motherboard blinking has stopped but it's still turning itself on and off but quicker this time

No I did not,  and probably because of that I f*cked up my whole pc. It's not even funny how much bad luck I have. Anyways I assume it's either the motherboard or the PSU, I hope to God it's not my cpu or gpu. Also I have no spare parts :)

Yeah, all I can think of is PSU or GPU. Hmm, try unplugging the power button / reset switch from motherboard...Rarely I've seen those go bad.

I would bet its the ram, I'm not an "expert", but that's what I suspect. If you ever figure it out, let the forum know, I'm curious to see what the issue was.

Did you plug in the Power supply's GPU PCIE power connector into the GPU?
