GTX 760 not running (New)

Okay so I just got my EVGA GTX 760 SC ACX, I put it in my computer and started it up. the usual blue HP screen popped up, and it said I could press escape for setup, I tried to hit escape, nothing.

It stays on the blue HP screen and beeps every few seconds, and then after a minute or two, it beeps a few times and then goes black screen.

This is my motherboard: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c02831611

This is the card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130932

I will mention, I tried to run the card with 1 6 pin, 2 6 pin, 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin, and just 1 8 pin power connector, with two 6 pin power connections in, both fans spin, with one 6 and one 8, I get 1 fan on the ACX cooler spinning, and 1 of them attempting to spin.

My power supply is a 750 watt, and I spoke to someone before that my power supply should be more than enough.
Now I did have new memory in, I tossed my old memory in just to narrow the problem down, the new memory checks fine, either way I requested an RMA and if the second card does the same thing, I may consider at least a newer psu

  1. The 760 will require 1 6-pin and 1 8-pin to run. As lond as its a decent 750w PSU it should be more than enough for a 760, a decent 750w should have no problem running 2 760's. Could be a DOA card, could be a bad PSU or motherboard problem aswell.

    What model of psu did you get, some psus are just bad quality and can barley put out 450 let alone the 750 number they put on the box.


    Its an alienware 750 watt, I took it from my previous alienware prebuilt computer, it is a few years old, but all I can do now is wait on the replacement card to be sure, and then I'll go pick up a new psu if needed.
  3. It sounds like either:
    1) the motherboard, or
    2) the PSU

    You didn't say if you had a graphics card in that motherboard before.

    Troubleshooting:
    1) Try different PSU
    2) If the new PSU works, great. If not it's likely your motherboard.

    Yes my new memory and old graphic card work fine in it.
    Same motherboard

    You've pretty much eliminated everything except the Power Supply.

    If your system works with the old graphics card, AND two 760's both fail that only really leaves the PSU.
  6. I have an identical problem and I tried switching the PSU's. Anything 500Watts and above should be plenty enough for this card by all accounts. I tried it on 300w, 600w and 750w PSUs. The effect is exactly as described at the beginning of the thread. There has got to be something else. Pls, help.
