Computer wont start after installing a new graphics card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
The power led flashes when pressed but no fans spin. Without the card in everything works fine.
 
My new card is a 760 and I removed the drivers from my old card. Is it a dead card? Or is it my mobo?

What motherboard do you have, also try the simple things like making sure the card is in the PCIe slot properly, that the power connectors are plugged in. Download and install your card drivers when the card isn't plugged in

Is your driver situation in good order. You said you removed the old card drivers, but  did you actually put the new drivers on?

Don't be quick to jump to conclusions.

 

He hasn't even told us his PSU, its not listed on that link he showed us. 

 

What PSU do you have? If it is a cheap make or not supplying adequate power then obviously it'll not boot.

Tried things like different pci-e slot or different pci-e cables even, just to make sure?

Does the 760 have any status lights on it?

I tried it on the 16x and the 8x slot, and no the MSI one has no status lights.

Kinda sounds like a DOA card but that must be very very rare.

Me and my friend had a very similar problem. It turned out to be the motherboard (he had an ASUS Sabertooth Z77). If possible try running any other graphics card either use one that your friend or relative may have or visit a local computer center. It could also be because your power supply is too weak or is broken and isn't providing the correct voltages and power. You should be able to check it in your BIOS. As odd as it may seem try taking out all of your RAM only leaving one stick in. It helped me and my friend to realise that there was something wrong with the board since we tried my power supply which was identical to what he had and it wasn't the problem. Lastly, make sure you are testing the computer on a separate socket (PC directly connected to the wall socket) it can be that your socket is overloaded and your PSU isn't providing enough power. Good luck in solving your problem!

Could it be Windows that is the root to the problem? I found this last night.

Well I don't think so considering that your PC does not power up if the card is installed which tells us its a hardware problem. It could be your PCI-E slot. Do you have any other PCI-E slots you can use or does your motherboard only have one?

if there was a problem with the gpu it would most likely still spin up and give you an error code. it could be an issue with your psu maybe with the card hooked up it refuses to put out power. or maybe you somehow messed up your board when installing the 760.
