Had this pc for almost a year now, built it myself.
Ok, so this morning I went to turn on my pc, and the monitor was not recognizing that the computer was turned on. I began troubleshooting; from blowing into the hdmi slots, to resetting the CMOS, nothing worked. I took to the idea that it was a problem on the monitor side, but after hooking up a laptop to it with the same HDMI cable, I know know this is strictly PC. While troubleshooting I noticed something very irregular, my Gpu (6 pin) was spinning slowly for 4 seconds, pausing for 1-2, then spinning slowly again. I figured this was me cheaping out on the power supply coming to bite me in the ass, but after unhooking everything except cpu (even unhooked its fan ), 24 pin power supply in motherboard, and the gpu, the same problem persisted. I have no idea how this could have happened, I have not touched the hardware in well over a month, and the inside is practically dust free. Is their anything I can do? Or should I start shopping around for a new gpu?
*reminder: I have already tried resetting the CMOS.
Any and all replies are desperately appreciated!
