PC will not boot with GPU installed

Hi

 

My PC will not boot with GPU installed.  If I take out the GPU, the computer boots up fine.  I am guessing I have a bad GPU or PSU.

I am looking for any help with figuring out which is bad.

 

 

Thanks!

What kind of display port are you using? hdmi, dvi, vga, etc...

Go into BIOS with GPU installed and check to see if the graphic cards is detected.

 

1) Uninstall GPU.

2) Go into BIOS, and make sure PCI-e is primary in primary display option. Shut down PC.

3) Reinstall GPU.

4) Do not use HDMI, use DVI.

5) Remove 1 of your 8GB ram stick so that you're only running on 1 stick. Make sure it's in the primary slot.

 

The likely problem is the display port cable that is being used. But to make sure, I need to know if the GPU is detected in BIOS. If it's not detected, then it's an issue with your motherboard PCI slot that needs to addressed. So changed PCI slot and/or updating the PCI slot while using the on-board graphics might do the trick. My assumption is still the display port, as I believe, you're using an uncertified display port. Swapping it for a certified cable or changing it to a DVI cable should do the trick.

 

Asus z170 with a GTX 970 seems to always have issues. This type of problem also occurred back in 2015 to 2016.

I am using a display port cable - the one with one corner cut off.  I will see if I have another cable laying around.

I can not install the GPU and boot so there is no way for me to know if BIOS is detecting the GPU.
