Old GTX 980 not working

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My neighbor gave me his old MSI GTX 980 4GD5T OC and i wanted to put it into my computer. However, whenever i do, my motherboard (the B450 tomahawk max) tells me it was not detected or failed. My monitor gives me a message to power down and unplug it. Does it just need to be updated, or is something wrong with the card?
