GPU debug light is on, but I do get video

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone!

 

So I've built my pc a while ago and I have used it for quite some time now. Recently I have upgraded my GPU from a RX480 to a GTX 1070. Everything boots normally and the GPU works. The problem is the fact that my Motherboard says that there is something wrong with my GPU. While installing the GPU I noticed that it doesn't seat 100% correctly. When the GPU is unscrewed the GPU is able to Swivel. I also noticed that I have pretty bad perfomance. i.e. I get 80 FPS in LoL (doesn't matter what settings). And I get 30 fps in GW2 (while my mate gets 60 fps all ultra settings with a gtx 1060).

 

The motherboard is the MSI b350 pc mate and my GPU is the MSI gtx 1070 gaming X.

 

Is my motherboard just broken and in need of a replacements? Or is there maybe something else wrong with the PC 😪

I bought it from a friend of mine, I had the same problem with my last GPU (RX 480). But was too lazy to fix the problem since everything worked as expected

try a different pcie slot and if possible, get your friend and benchmark that 1070 on their pc to make sure the card is working.

if the card is working then if possible, switch motherboards.

So I was able to test it. The light doesnt turn on in another pc. So I tried my other pci-e slot and the light turns on as well. 

 

So I am thinking that my mobo doesnt supply enough power to the gpu. (I have 500 watts)

is your power cable for the GPU in? I doubt you dont have enough power but there might be a motherboard issue

i think your psu is fine.

because that gpu has a tdp of 150w which really isnt a lot.

 

i mean unless your like me and letting the gpu eat up 225w for literally no reason, then there should be no issue with the psu

its probably the mobo
