I have seen other topics like this, but I have yet to see exactly what I'm looking for so I figured I'd post this.

I turned on my pc this morning and my graphics card (Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 ti) fan started spinning really fast and no image was showing up on the screen. The logo on the side was lit up and there were no beeps or lights on that shouldn't have been when I started the computer. From what I have read it appears that my card is dead, and I have another one coming in 1-2 days as a free replacement, but I wanted to make sure that was in fact the problem so that the new card does not start doing the same thing when I put it in. I have had the card for a little over a week now and it has been running flawlessly in that time, and then all of a sudden just started doing that today. I tried moving the card down a slot on the motherboard, and that made no difference.

I moved the computer to a new location and a different monitor, which is a step up from the monitor I had before, yesterday and it was running fine last night, so nothing has changed between when it was and wasn't working as far as I can tell.

Has anyone had this problem and knows a fix to it or is the card indeed dead? Also what could have been the cause of this if it was working fine yesterday then just not today?

What motherboard and CPU? Is there onboard video available?

The processor is an i7 4770k and motherboard is a Z87-G45 gaming motherboard, and I removed the card from the computer so it is currently running off the onboard video.

Have you tested the second PCIe slot and still the same?

Yes I tried that and just taking it out and putting it back in, it still did the same thing after both.

Then let's see if working wth the new card. If not, the next on the list would be the power supply.

Put in the new card today, identical symptoms, fan spins up really fast, no display. The power supply I have is a Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze, which I believe is well above the minimum requirements for the card.

If starting the board with only CPU and CPU fan installed, are you getting any beeps?

If the CPU fan is spinning and no beeps (RAMs and graphics card uninstalled), then it's either the board or the CPU. Try RMA-ing them both.

If your fans are running so fast, it means you did not connect the PCIE power connector.
