Hi

 

My problem is that when i have my GPU inserted into my pc the screen shows no signal, but when i take the card out and boot with onboard graphics the machine boots without any problems.

My question is, is it my GPU or my PSU there is the problem?

 

The problem started after a reboot of my pc.

There have been 1 - 2 times before where the screen has showed no signal, but when i pressed the reset bottom on my pc the screen have turned on.

Is your video input plugged into the GPU and not the motherboard video? Are power connectors plugged into the card?

 

Also, If you posted system specs along with the wattage of your current PSU, I could give you an accurate answer as to whether or not there's enough power.

Things to check:

 

1) Open the case and make sure the display adapter is seated firmly

2) Make sure the connections on both ends (adapter & display) are secure

3) Try a different cable between the adapter and display

I'm assuming this is a new card? Have you tried disabling the on-board video in the BIOS? Boot the BIOS with onboard graphics, see if you can disable it, then install the new GPU and try that.

This is getting more and more weird, after i took the card out and plugged it back in the computer booted without any problems.

Anyways, the problem is solved.

Glad to hear. As I suggested in my post above, the first thing to check is that the card is properly seated. It sometimes dislodges if the pc is moved from one location to another or if it wasn't firmly seated when first installed. In any event, thanks for posting back and letting us know.
