Possible Post, now no boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just built my first desktop (woo!) and it did what Im assuming is double boot (fans came on then whole system turned off, then came back on again) the first time I turned it on. The only screen it gave me was that I needed to plug in the power pins to the GPU, I had no idea what the 8 pin connector was for so I had just ignored it and hoped for the best. I plugged in another PCIe cable to my power supply and connected it to the GPU, so so just to clarify there are two PCIe cables going to the GPU, one using a 6 pin connector and one with a 6+2pin (I hope that is what this is for, the little 2 pin is like an optional thing, the other cable has it too). Now the screen will not come on at all, even when I replicate the original scenario, I cannot get the screen that says plug in the power cable.

This is my hardware if that helps:



Any help is appreciated, also I have used 3 different hdmi cables so I don't believe that can be the problem
