Afterburner oc scanner crashed, no display signal

Rtx 2070 super, 3600, x570 aorus elite, 2x8gb, 650 watt psu. Windows 10.

Ran msi afterburner oc scanner earlier today. During the scan the screen went black. Pc stayed on. I rebooted and no signal is being recieved by the monitor. Tried pulling the battery from the mobo, tried my old gtx 970 and same problem. Monitor power light turns blue then goes red and monitor reads no signal. Repeats like 3 times and then stays red.

I'm lost as to what to do next. The gpu is 4 days old, the other components are 4 months old minus the psu and hdd which are 5 years old.

Would be very grateful for any advice.

That's a pretty hard crash... lol
As poster above said and what i would be leading to is a dead/dying PSU.
MSI afterburner is normal operation for a black screen on a fail overclock, but not after a reboot.
I would first try the graphics card in another computer if possible to rule that out.

I like to have fun.

Reboot in safe mode. I've had this happen before with I think my old 670... You may have to boot in safe mode, disable the external gpu... Uninstall the driver. Enable the gpu then install the driver again... See if that works.

plausible your display driver corrupted. if so you'd be able to boot into safe mode from the GPU mostly likely. then run guru3d DDU, and also take advantage of their cleaned Nvidia drivers.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
