Asus P7P55D mobo
core i5-750 cpu
2x 2gb corsair ram
gs 600 corsair psu
I recently purchased a 5850. Ran awesome for approximately 2 weeks with no issues.
Today, after pressing power button, all fans come on, but nothing appears on monitors (no bios or anything), also no "startup" beep comes from my computer. Tried unplugging everything, tightning graphics card to no avail.
I pulled out the 5850 and put in my old graphics card in the same PCI-E slot, the computer booted up immediately and was fine. My old graphics card does not require any 6pin power, while the 5850 requires 2 6 pin connectors.
Then I plugged the 5850 back in again to try and got the same problem: nothing on monitors, no startup beep.
Not an expert.... my assessment this means either:
a) PSU is having problems and not providing enough power to 5850 (replace PSU)
b) graphics card is hosed (replace graphics card)
Any ideas for what the problem may be and how I can troubleshoot this further before trying to return parts?
Which 5850 did you get? Some of them require 2 6pin and others require 1 6pin and 1 8pin. If it's the later you might have under supplied it for a few weeks and killed it. Either way it sounds like the graphics card died. I wouldn't expect a corsair psu to fail and a 600W should easily be able to handle it. Is it still RMA able?
