I know exactly whats the problem here. I had the same problem when i installed my gtx 770. You need to update your motherboards bios. For that you will need an external drive. Find out what your motherboard is called, go to your motherboards website and find the newest bios update for your current motherboard, download it, copy it over to your external drive, go to bios menu and install it from your external drive

Having same problem with GTX 760, going to update the BIOS later, already changed PSU and New card works on another machine. One thing that bothers me is that die case light start of bright then dimms as it try to start?
