New GPU computer won't boot
May 7, 2017, 6:28 PM
I switched from a Gtx 760 to an RX 480.
The fans on the card turn on, computer starts, but there's no signal to the monitor. It doesn't boot.
I had to buy a 6pin to 8pin adaptor for the 480. It connects to a two 6pin cable.
It'll boot when I swap in the 760.
The PSU is rated for 460 watts.
My system is some old XPS running an i7 2600. I don't know what the mobo is, but it only has one pci e slot.
I uninstalled all the Nvidia drivers and replaced them with the AMD ones.
It still doesn't work.. I don't know what's going on.

Did you plug the display cable ( could be DVI, HDMI, VGA, Display port,... ) to the RX 480? Don't plug it in the motherboard, it won't work as dual graphics ( onboard + GPU ) like laptops.
