7950 not responding....

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
As the title says, my 7950 will not respond to Windows. I do not have a single idea as of how to fix this, it has never happened before. I took the measures to safely remove it when cleaning the dust out of the heat sink, but when I put it back in, it wouldn't respond. Help

Can you explain what you mean by "will not respond"???

It's like Windows won't recognize it because I can't seem to get the signal on my monitor( 42 inch Vizio)

Take it out once again and re-seat.
Also make sure you plugged in the 6/8 pin power leads securely.

I have reseated it 5 times, and all times the 6+8 pin connectors were seated properly and securely. I reinstalled the drivers as well, but windows does not seem to find it, and the fans spin to 100% with no picture being displayed.

Similar thing happened when I exchanged the thermal paste on mine - black screen and no other signs of life.
Took the heatsink off, put it on again and it was back to life. Don't really know what went wrong.

Try another PCI-e slot. This will cancel out the possibility of a dead card. Do you know how to properly uninstall drivers? Download driver sweeper and uninstall the drivers properly. If you don't know how I will explain it to you.

I know how to do the complete wipe, and I will try out another pcie slot. Thanks for all the help guys! Hope this gets sorted out soon!

No, I don't even get a signal from my graphics card. No bios screen or anything. Something that is very annoying is the 100% fan speed that I cannot change, and I have no idea how to fix this
