When I try to turn the computer on with my video card in, it wont turn on at all. it will boot fine if i take the video card out, and use the onboard. Is this a video card issue or a motherboard issue? this just started happening tonight.

the gpu overheated, and the computer shut off. So I kind of feel like it may have fried, but that's the first time it's ever overheated and shut off, so I didn't think the first/only time it's ever done it would cause that much damage.

Like someone mentioned, try using another card if you have one.

I know his on board works. Still I don't know why adding a video card would cause his motherboard not to turn on unless something is shorting out.

As he mentioned, the GPU fried on his card, so I'm wondering if it took the PCI-E x16 slot along with it.

How/Why did the GPU overheat to that extreme in the first place?

Also, the GPU should have a safety cut-off for that scenario, where it'll cut off to prevent too much damage.
Try resetting your BIOS with the CMOS jumpers, with the GPU in-place.

Yeah, I figured it would cutoff, as well before damaging itself. It turns out the fan came unplugged, and that's why it overheated. I already tried resetting the CMOS, and still doesn't work, so I think something was damaged, and i'm not going to be able to get it fixed


Fortunately it was a different computer than the one in my signature.

I had the same problem with my video card Jeremy, the problem is that your video card whatever if maybe is faulty and if you can you should try and return it or get it fixed from where ever you got it from.
