Graphics card not powering up

last week i accidently pulled the plug on my computer while it was on and blew the PSU so today i got a new PSU (750w), connected it all up and now when i turn it on, it powers up fine, although the fan for my GPU doesint spin(the gpu doesint power up) and i get no display on the monitor.
My graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 6670
Also just to clarify i have never had any problems with my GPU up to now
Any help would be much appreciated

  1. If you blew the PSU, then it is quite likely that you fried the graphics card. Anytime anything goes wrong with the power supply like that, you can bet that it will take other components to the grave with it, that is why you should always buy good power supplies.
  2. is there any way to determine if it is infact fried, or would that just be the solution from it not powering up?
  3. Inspect the card's circuitboard see if there are any burn marks. The only other thing I could suggest is putting it in another computer and testing it out.

    +1 this guy is nailing it. you can test the gpu in another computer. if it works then you probably fried the mb.
