PC doesn't boot up with GPU: MB dead?

My PC now boots up only with integrated graphic, I tried even a new graphic card without success (no matter which slot I put it in): if the GPU is installed and connected to the power supply, the PC won't boot up (the VGA alarm LED will turn on on the MB).

Should I assume that the MB is dead?


note: everything else works perfectly fine, it is just impossible to use any discrete GPU (in either of the two PCI-E slots)

any input is warmly welcome

Have you tried swapping the PSU out yet? This does not specifically point to the motherboard without testing that first. Its possible the PSU isn't applying proper power to the PCI-E systems or to the GPU itself and the motherboard is simply reacting to this.

I had a bad 8 pin modular cable that caused this issues once. Doubt it's the mobo. Try a different 8 pin connector to feed power to the video card.

I didn't consider this because everything else works... atm I have no ways of trying a new PSU without buying one

If you are able to post some pictures, that might help as well. Have you tried resetting your BIOS to factory defaults?

atm I disconnected al cables and will take it to a friend that has a similar PSU, so I can test that. Will get back to this thread once this is done

okay so here is the update as promised: the lab confirmed that the motherboard is deceased. RIP.

since I doubt that getting a compatible motherboard for a ten yo PC, installing it and whatnot would be a good investment, I already ordered a new PC and will be selling the old one, either "as is" or piece by piece.


Thanks all you who replied!
