Hi all. So I have a custom computer i built a couple of years ago. Yesterday I purchased a new case fan. Before installing the new fan, I blew out the entire computer. I got everything good and proceeded to try and power up. The tower seams to come and run fine but i'm not getting anything on either of my monitors ( i've tried both on their own and still nothing ). This unit was running totally fine until I took it apart for cleaning and the fan. So far I have tried resetting the cmos, reseating the ram, and GPU, trying to boot with 1 ram. But nothing has worked I cant get anything on my monitor. I have checked all of my connections and it should be fine. The build for the computer is as follows,

 

MB: MSI Gaming 970

GPU: Nvidia GTx650

CPU: AMD (not sure of the exact specs)

2x 4GB Ram

 

The Mobo and Processor are only a couple months old but the GPU is pretty bad. I hope we can narrow this down to the GPU so i can just replace it. If anyone could help me in any way it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome N4S to bleeping computer :welcome: !

I've found gpushack.com is a great place to look for a new gpu. Just make sure your power supply is big enough.

Did you check the 6 pin power connector on the GPU?

 

What operating system are you using?

 

Your motherboard doesn't have integrated graphics, so you can't test this using the onboard graphics.

 

Do you have access to another computer you could install the GPU to see if it works in another computer?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The GPU is plugged in properly. I am using windows 8. I swapped my GPU with a friends today and still nothing. I obtained an internal speaker and ran a beep test on my rig. Came back 5 short beeps which seems to indicate a CPU issue. I'm going to take it to a local store for them to confirm before I buy anything. I hate PC problems :(
