GPU fried?

Hi all, 

 

So, i was just doing some routine maintainence on my pc

 

i7 7700k

msi z270 carbon mobo

16gb (2x8gb) trident z 3200 ram

Msi Armour GTX1080

 

I finished changing the liquid (all water cooled) and everything booted up fine. Did a little re-arranging in the bios. For some reason it was trying to boot from a windows iso stored on a hard drive rather than the actual boot ssd. 

 

I restarted and it was forking fine. I leave it running for 10 mins to find that it had crashed but with no video output. 

 

I have rebooted the machine, but the "EZ Debug" leds keep getting stuck on the VGA light. 

 

Here is what i have tested:

 

Clear Cmos - Same result

Remove GPU - Same Result

Reseated GPU and all cables - Same Result

Swap GPU (old R9 280) - Same Result (however, im not sure if this GPU works so not really any help)

 

I cleared the cmos each time i tried something different as well. 

 

Any ideas on whether its a motherboard or a GUP issue? and any ideas on a fix?

 

Thanks

Loki

you said that you turned on the PC without the GPU (via the integrated graphics) and it still didnt work? if it didnt, then its not the GPU but rather another part of the PC.

Yes i did. I tried with the integrated graphics and the motherboard still got stuck on the VGA LED

did you tried integrated with the GPU out of the system? If there is a GPU still in there, it will try and get through that on the POST and still fail it.

Yes, i removed and unplugged the GPU. Powered up, and the system would still not boot. Cleared CMOS and tried again. Still no luck.

 

Could it be the motherboard? as it gets through the CPU and DRAM checks fine.

if it does it even with the GPU removed and plugged into the motherboard and still gets stuck on VGA and a cleared CMOS, it does lend itself to a problem with the board. I would take and remove the CPU, inspect the socket pins to make sure you didnt bend any pins or get anything stuck under it and reseat it and test again.

Thanks dude, 

 

It shouldnt be the CPU as it hasnt been moved for a few months since i re-did the thermal paste and the computed has been running smoothly for months. 

 

Though i shall give this a go before i fork out for a new mobo.
