I honestly cant type out my full problem again, but i will post my two other threads in two other forums and basically one suggested the problem was my gpu, didn't fix but hey a new gpu, now i got my new psu but the problem still persists...

My two threads they both have my computer specs and mobo.. my new psu is a corsair cx 600 and gpu is a msi geforce 670 all i need is seious help i miss my using my computer lol.

Hi. One, from what I saw you are definitely over heating. There can be many reasons for this, but seeing that post with a 0% fan reading, I would say that is a major issue. Okay, you plugged it in upstairs and it tripped the breaker. That tells me there is a short somewhere. First thing I would do, is to remove the Motherboard and check to see if all the standoffs are in place and snug. The second thing I would check is the Connectors and make sure the right connectors are plugged into the right sockets. You probably have a stronger breaker on the downstairs circuit and the reason it hasn't tripped, which can definitely be not good for the computer. As I said, I strongly suspect a short, the tripped breaker was a good thing, but being downstairs on an obviously higher rated breaker, it hasn't tripped and that can't be good. Hopefuly you haven't messed up any components, but there is no gurantee as it doesn't take long.

Can you condense what you've tried and found out? I don't really want to read through 4 pages of Q/A.

From skimming it this is what I've seen.

Old GPU problems:
1: fan doesn't spin
2: overheating

Does the new gpu have these same problems? Has anything changed from your old setup to the new one? (when you got the new PSU/GPU did the overheating go away?)

Basically, my first gpu fan didnt spin, it over heats and computer dies i buy a new gpu the fan spins until the monitor gets to the select a user screen then itll stop spinning, i bought a new psu the psu works fine but the same problems happen, the cpu fan spins fine but the motherboard's ethernet port dosent light up ( and wont work) so this makes me think the mobo is busted?

Its possible its a mobo problem. I won't rule that out but I'd like to try other things before buying anything else. First does device manager have any yellow exclamation points? In the ethernet menu do any red X's indicating the ethernet port is simply turned off? Does device manager even recognize the ethernet port?

After that, since its a realtek chipset where have you been getting the drivers from? Windows/mobo website/realtek?

If its windows or the mobo website try grabbing them from realtek.

Another thing to try would be to see if the ethernet port lights up when you pop in a linux live cd (if you don't have a spare dvd then you can use a USB drive)

I take it you don't have another PC to test the GPU on?

Nope no other pc, ill try to see if i can do the stuff you guys recommended when i come back later this evening. what i can confirm is with my psu my room is not instantly shorted out but the gpu problem still occurs, can motherboard drivers cause the fan to stop? I also have put my Mobo on cardboard just now an will still not boot up all the time normally.

Have you tried all my suggestions? If so did you get your ethernet port working?

I would double check using a linux dvd and see if this happens in there since the problem seems to be popping up after windows loads.

Also have you tried forcing your GPU to max its fan speed in the drivers?

Oh yes, i orgot to update this post to, i was able to solve the booting problem and the ethernet port was a funny as it was simply the ethernet cable apparently dosnen't work with my port but works with my xbox 360. All thats left is my gpu fan not running but it is somehow able to max out if i go to afterburner but i feel that would kill my gpu

Ah so the GPU fan is actually functional. Two more questions. 1: Does the GPU fan turn on when you put run a game? 2: If so then its working fine, if it worries you then you can make a custom fan curve for it in MSI afterburner. If it doesn't turn on during something intensive, then we have a problem.

Nope it does not turn on when i run a game, i tried ac4 and my computer shuts down from what i guess is the heat. But what i do notice is from downloading ntune, and looking at nvidia control panel and at performance it says my motherboard is not reported maybe its because my mobo is amd and uninstalling my amd drivers uninstalled the chipset? idk if that would affect the fans though.. and msi afterburner for some reason will put the fan on 100% but i can't change it. also when my Nvidia drivers arent installed the fan spins normally after start up

Hmm, I am not really sure where to put the blame. The drivers might be the root cause since its fine in the bios and in windows stock drivers. I'd try a couple of older revisions, if that fails try a clean windows install if possible.

Might have already asked this, but just to be double sure, all the power connectors are plugged into the card, right? (6pin/8pin)

Tried the clean install, nothing, tried older revisions same problem. I did confirm though that the gpu fan stops spinning once the Nvidia display drive is being used.

Well, I'd try sending both MSi and Nvidia an email and see what there opinions are. I am honestly out of ideas. I mean technically you could set up a fan curve with MSi afterburner, that might work but its not a good solution. Something obviously broken here and since its there hardware/software they should be able to figure it out quicker than I can.

I really hate being unable to help though, sorry. Keep me posted on there responses, I'm interested.

Best solution

I got the problem fixed, in the Msi forum some guy told me to flash my gpu bios with this UEFI bios and it fixed the problem! thanks for the help every one i really appreciate it!

Thats interesting, I didn't even think to check for a bios update. Still seems like a big omission on MSi's part.
