Hi, just now I installed the Nvidia 310.70 driver update, after a restart, the desktop loaded, then I wanted to use the internet, but before that, my PC autoamtically restarted, and there's no sign of display at all.

I am using the MSI 650 TI Twin Frozr. The fans of the GPU is spinning as usual, but there is no light, until about 30 seconds later, the fan stopped briefly and lights came up.

Also, the case fan for my chassis also ceased to turn. It was as though there was not enough power.

For my PSU, I'm using a Seasonic G Series 550W.

Anyone can point out the problem?


On a side note, I managed to get it work, but I have no idea what did I do, but what I do realise is that I did not insert the GPU. I used the VGA output from my mobo directly. I uninstalled the driver, restarted the com with my GPU inserted this time, redownloaded the driver (As i suspected the driver installation file to be faulty), and reinstalled the driver again.

Again, after the restart, like 20 seconds into the desktop, the system auto restarted, and there's no display again

it may be that the driver has issues, you might want to roll back to your last working driver and contact nvidia about the driver issue

650Ti wants only 110W at max.
goto safemode restore system to earlier state .

If the case fans ceased to turn, I do believe it might still be a power issue.

A 650ti doesnt require alot of power like hytecgowthaman stated, but it seems that you have the 650ti HAWK EDITION than might take a little bit more than a normal 650 ti.

What is your system specs in total?
And if possible, the amount and size of fans you are running in that case.

If so I can calculate the amount of power you are already using off the PSU

That PSU has a single +12v/45a rail that you can use, and the minimum is +12v/20a thats required for that card. Make sure everything is plugged in to the correct spot on the power supply, since its a semi modular design you have a couple output connections
