A friend bought a new computer and I install everything.

Box: Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H-WB
CPU: Intel BX80637 i5 3570k 3.4GHz, Socket LGA1155.
Graphic Card: VTX3D Radeon HD7970 X-Edition 3gb GDDR5 PCI-Express 3.0
Sound Card: Asus Xonar DGX 5.1
HDD: Seagate 2TB 3.5 7200RPM 64mb cache SATA3
SDD: Crucial M4 256GB SATA3 7mm 2.5
RAM:G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) PC3-12800 1600MHz CL9
PSU: Be Quiet Dark Power Pro 10 850W PSU
CPU Cooler: Scythe Ninja 3 Rev.B

When I try to run the computer with the graphic card, It resets after a minute. I unplug the graphic card and install windows with no problems, but now I can't install the graphic card because the computer launch a blue screen when I try to install the drivers.
I tried to star on safe mode but with no result, I tried to reinstall windows with the 7970 plugged, but no result too, the computer restart all time.

I can't enter the BIOS with the graphic card plugged because it resets too.

Any idea to solve this? :sweat: 

Thank's for your help

It sounds like the card may be defective. Can you test it on a different machine? Or a different card in the new machine?
