Upgrading GPU might have ruined my build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

After upgrading my GPU from a 1060 3gig (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pKX2FT/evga-geforce-gtx-1060-3gb-sc-gaming-video-card-03g-p4-6162) to a certified refurbished 2070 from Zotac (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/bF97YJ/zotac-geforce-rtx-2070-8-gb-video-card-zt-t20700a-10p) my EZ Debug lights on my motherboard have turned on for the GPU. I shut my PC down and booted it back up. The Debug light turned off for my GPU but turned on for my CPU (Ryzen 5 1600x) and my DRAM (2x Ballistix 8gb 2400). I fear that installing the GPU might have short-circuited or ruined my other components, but I have enough power from my power supply to support all of it. I have tried switching back to the 1060, resetting the CMOS, and taking out the sticks of ram and swapping them but the lights are still on and my PC won't boot. I have also made sure that all of the cables from the PSU are socketed in properly. Also all the fans and lights in the PC turn on and work (CPU fan spins, GPU blower spins). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry but I can't focus on your post, thanks to that blinking GIF which I find rather nauseating. Do us all a favor and replace it with something less irritating. 


Thank you.

Did you buy the GPU from a ship or a person? If it was a ship you could contact them and ask if they can help you out. If the cpu Led is shining i'd say try to get a different cpu to see if that's actually the problem.
