Issue with GTX 970. VGA LED...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

Currently having issue with GTX 970 on:

MSI B450M Mortar Max

Ryzen 5 2600x

2x8gb Ballistix 2666mhz

PSU GP-650

System not posting up. VGA led shows issue.

Now I placed RTX 2070 into same system, everything working fine. 

Maybe someone has any ideas how to fix this issue?

 

P.S. GTX 970 working fine on my other system.

Try DDUing it and reinstaling the driver?

That won't make a difference if the system won't POST.

Ok, just making sure we are covering the basics.

Is there another PCIe slot in your mobo you can test it (the GTX 970 that is) with?

Maybe your motherboard just decided to end its friendship with your 970 and decided it wanted a new one...

There is, but will be challenging due GPU size.. can't properly install, because of power and reset plugs

Yeah don't break your system over this.

If the 2070 works as your system stands, the the BIOS won't make a difference on the older GFX card

Well... Then I have no idea what to do. MSI support proved once that they're useless... 

Don't think they would be able to help this time.

Vendors never are of help.

And short of spending money on a PCIe extension cable to test the other PCIe slot, I think I"m out of ideas as well, but others may chime in here with some better ideas than I have
