Recently I exchanged a faulty Radeon HD 7950 to Amazon. I now have my replacement HD 7950, but now my rig won't power on with the new one. With the old one my rig would power on and work fine until the card started acting funny. Now with the new one the system will turn on for a split second then turn off. Does this sound like a faulty psu to you guys? I don't think a faulty gpu would cause ths cuz then wouldnt my rig still turn on atleast?
My complete rig is as follows:
Asus M5A97 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 GPU
128 GB AData SSD
AData Gaming Series RAM (2x4GB)
Corsair CX600 PSU
Sorry. I should've mentioned that in the original post. Without the card it turns on and gives me beeps which I think just mean no video card.
I should've mentioned this as well but whether the card is actually plugged into the pci power connectors or not it still surges. So even if the card is just in the slot without the power connected to it, it surges on then off. Which with the old card, it would power on and this was just a few hours before I was able to try the replacement card.
No, they have not told me if they card I sent them was bad or not because I was able to send it off to them finally yesterday. They sent me the replacement before they had the faulty one.
Is it really possibly my motherboard because if it was wouldn't my computer atleast boot up and just not give me any picture? Or is it possible that with it being in the slot and whether or not the power cables are actually plugged in, that it just surges on then off?
