MSI GT 720 not posting

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

 

my first time posting here and im really having a bad day about what’s happened/happening. So to start, I sold my 2060 super today to invest into a 2080 super. Since I’ll be buying it online, I’m without a graphics card for about a week or two. I have a b450 max motherboard and a R5 3600x. So I thought I’d be able to use my computer without the graphics card. Big nope... I learned my version doesn’t output graphics. So plan B, my old gt 720! I dug it out and cleaned the contacts and slid that baby in anndd... nothing. I tried both pcie slots and nothing. Doesn’t post at all. I’m at a total loss at what to do. I’ve been researching for hours and I cannot find even a possible solution. Maybe I have to flash my board to a different version? I also noticed the vga port on the gt 720 is missing. Maybe that’s why it’s not working?

If you are 100% certain that the card works, it may simply be that the card has no UEFI-support and your mobo's BIOS refuses to initialize non-UEFI GPUs.

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 monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

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.

Hey guys. So I confirmed it’s posting on my OLDERR pc from over 10 years ago. Pc has some problems so it didn’t boot all the way but here’s a pic. I am using no adapters. Trying to use hdmi because that’s all I have compatable with any tv/monitor in my home. Anyways, so we definitely know the problem lies with my main pc. And I believe I do have my pc set up with uefi. But I looked up the compability list of the b450 max and the gt 720 was on there. Confirmed on pcpartpicker
