When I connected the pc to the monitor with the gtx 1060 amp edition it wouldn't boot but when I remove the card it did?
Edit card was brand new but i didn't use it and I kept it in its original case.
GPU might be DOA, you might want to test it if possible
Sorry, I'm a beginner can you tell me what DOA is? Also the fans of the gpu were working but there was no signal to monitor so I removed it and it booted. I haven't tried installing it since.
DOA means dead on arrival.
Things I would check:
If it doesn't work, send it back. If it does work, great- problem solved. Good luck.
Thank you for your response I'll see what the outcome is and tell you if you want.
Is the wire plugged into the motherboard or graphics card? If it is plugged into the motherboard, it won’t work because the integrated graphics are disabled, and you’ll want it in the graphics card for it to work. If that does not work, it may be DOA like thedukeanator13 said.
I connected the gpu to the six pin connector on the power supply and connected it into the first slot. I'm planning to install the drivers first then put the gpu in hopefully that may work because the fans do spin.
For a lot of modern GPUs the fans will not start until the GPU reaches a certain temperature.
My 1050 Ti spins all the time. Not all do.
I read a manual and my 1060 amp edition only spins at certain temperature and above but it was spinning when I booted the pc
Hmm. I am not sure
The fans on my RX 470 don't move unless I am doing something graphically intensive. When I play a game like LOL the fans don't even start for about 20 minutes.
Think the poster above means did you plug the monitor cable into the graphics card and not the motherboard I/O back panel connectors. Although that wouldn't really seem like the issue if your PC isn't booting at all with the graphics card inserted.
Other things worth double-checking:
1) that the graphics card is seated properly in the motherboard slot PCIEX16 (ie. the uppermost long red PCIE slot on your motherboard)
2) you've got the power cable running from the 6-pin connector on the card to the correct input (PCIE) in the power supply (and not to, say, a SATA/peripheral socket)
I mean the wire you connect from the gpu to monitor, sorry I didn't say that.
Many things could cause this. Something to try is putting the GPU in a different PCIe slot (not the top one) to see if the motherboard's top PCIe slot is dead.
