PC wont start with GPU but starts without GPU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The pc was working just fine. I turned off one night and next morning it's not starting. If I press the power button of the case; nothing happens; no light anything. I opened the case and removed my graphics card and put the dvi cable in board graphics and pc is working just fine. For a test purpose; I again put the gpu but same as before. Not starting.
My config is i5 4570, 8 GB DDR3, Asrock b85 fatality, sapphire r9 290, coolermaster 700w bronze. Pc is about 3 years old.
Thanks.

Have you tried clearing BIOS, redoing any settings concerning PCI-E graphics at boot, and trying it again? Perhaps the BIOS had a fault and reset, changing settings that messed up the default video output.

Do you have another system to test the card out in, or conversely another video card to use in its place to see if it is the system or the card causing the problem? It can be pretty difficult to easily diagnose issues with out available parts to swap. Replacing a suspected bad with a known good, or a known good with a suspected bad is one of the fastest ways to be sure if a certain part is faulty.

You could test out the system without the GPU and see what the voltages look like. If it is a little out of whack then it might be the PSU dying. You could also try swapping out the PSU and see if the GPU will work with the system.

thank you for your answer.no i didnt try clearing the bios or redoing any setting. clearing the cmos and loading default bios.. i'll try that. unfortunately i dont have access to other system to check the card; some of my friends pc are there but their case is small for my card; i'll have to separate the board from case and do everything but i think i wont be able to do that. i will have to travel to capital city to test this which unfortunately wont be happening soon. how do i see my psu's voltage and how do i know its a little bit whack ?

So, in BIOS, I found this,
CPU Input Voltage : +1.760V
Vcore : +0.955V
12.00V : +12.091V
5.00V : +5.160V
3.30V : +3.360V

There should be a basic hardware monitor in BIOS in the same place you would normally find the CPU temp and fan settings. I believe there are also some programs for checking within the operating system, but I haven't used any in years and I don't use Windows anymore. I believe CPUID and Everest both have sensor monitoring programs, but I haven't used them in a long time.

Just saw your new post and the voltages look good. Hard to tell, but the problem probably isn't with the PSU.
