Is my 1070 dying already?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Alright, a few days ago, I've posted about my computer crashing randomly Here.
I've unplug and re-plug my GPU and everything is running fine, until now.
So yesterday I was running my computer overnight to download things, and the next day (today) I realized that my GPU is not lighting up and there's nothing on my screen whatsoever, so I've unplug and ran it off my on-board graphics, then re plug my graphics and it seemed to work fine. So went on to play some games. Suddenly my graphics card stopped working (black screen), the fans are not spinning (It's probably in 0db fan mode), lights are not shining. Everything in my PC still seems to work perfectly fine, (everything is still running, lights and all that) So I've shut my PC down and rebooted it, GPU is still not lighting up and nothing is showing on the screen. The only light that is shining is the one for the power (white).
Is my GPU dying? What is the problem?

GPU: Strix 1070 (Bought about 2 months ago)

Update: I've rebooted my PC to find more problems, still nothing showing up on screen, but my peripherals aren't lighting up as well.

It do sound like a defective gpu. Or driver issue, did you install latest driver?

What is your power supply?

Thanks for the quick reply, everything in my PC is bought 3 months ago, but the 1070 is 2. My power supply is RM850x from corsair, I've used my GPU for a lot of games and it didn't die on me until now, I've installed the latest drivers.

Strange issue. I really think it a defective gpu. I got a rm 1000x with a Strix 1070 oc myself and never lost screen and or had bug like that.

And i push mine hard sometime for folding@home. 100% load all days.


I would says get ready for rma.


If you use the program HWINFO64 sometime it may crash some gpu. Had issue with my amd 7950 losing temperature sensor reading and clock getting stuck.

Thanks, but could it be my motherboard? Because my peripherals aren't lighting up?

In that case yes maybe.

Motherboard light up stuff on boot and or when windows load driver depending on how your device are setup to light up.

But if you start the pc without the gpu everything work fine?

Do you have another pcie slot to try the gpu in?

If you have a pc shop nearby they could try your gpu for a fee. Or a friend pc.

I live in HK, so there's isn't a lot of PC shops. I'm starting to think that it might be my motherboard or my cpu (6600k), since I've tried to boot it without the GPU and it still wont work. Only the lights on the motherboard would light up, but none of the peripherals would light up (keyboard, mouse, monitor etc.)

Might need to do a full power down unplug the cable from back press hold power button 10 seconds to discharge remaining power also remove the CMOS battery before you do the full discharge. This should get you back to least the igpu and bios defaults. Unless you have a jumper onboard you can use. My Rive be did this way back but I since fixed issues with better cooling less crashes.

If it not booting with the integrated graphic (IGP) and the gpu removed from the pcie slot it really mean something is wrong.


Cpu are the most reliable thing in pc hardware.

The motherboard must be the issue.



Try what shadow just said. Mobo are kinda dumb sometime. smile.gif

I've removed the GPU and nothing is showing up :s

How do I remove the CMOS Battery? I'm using a Maximus 8 Hero board.
