Weird problem with gpu not posting

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

New build, 10700kf, msi z490 tomahawk, corsair rm850, 32gb 3600mhz ram, 128gb nvme, gtx 670, phanteks p500a, nzxt kraken x73

 

The build seems to run fine without the GPU (an old gtx 670): it turns on and stays on, with only thr vga led motherboard warning light, as there is no gpu. But I can't tell whether its fine for sure, as this is a 10700kf cpu, so no IGU onboard, to actually see the bios. As soon as I try to install the gtx 670, the build fails to run, just cycling through attempts to post. Yes I'm connecting gpu power correctly, and the monitor to the gpu, and not the motherboard. Led indicators on motherboard are telling me bugger all, they are all lighting in succession (individually), before settling on no vga.

 

I've tried installing the gpu with different cables, into different power supply sockets, and into different pcie sockets. Same problems in every combination....ive even tried to power it from another power supply, in another computer, with same results. Power just refuses to stay on, led warning lights on motherboard, wont post, and cycling power as it keeps trying. As soon as I remove gpu, everything looks fine again....

 

So, obviously a dodgy gpu, right? The thing is, it works perfectly, in the old system I nicked it from (an athlon x2 beast). No problems at all. Nada. I even put it back in its original system, to check it WAS still working, after all this palava. Still works and posts, fine, in that system.

 

I've got no other gpu, to test the new build. PC partpicker says the gtx 670 is compatible with msi z490 tomahawk.

 

FWIW I also tried reinstalling ram, all cpu/atx power connectors, etc, etc, all to no avail.

 

What's going on?! 🤔🤨😕😡🤬

 

Thanks

reset CMOS? possibly faulty new parts, cant tell which


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Yeah did that too. No luck. Only faulty part it could be is motherboard, as I've isolated everything else. Motherboard is the only component I bought online, and organising rma will be a nightmare.. . I'm wondering if it's worth just buying a throwaway gpu to check, though...I've heard that sometimes new and old parts just dont like each other very much?

i've used an ATi x550 to diagnose my PC before, as long as it fits, it should be fine
