  1. Hi, Just built a new I5 Gaming system and well the graphics card seems to be dead-or theres something else wrong with it

    what happened was the card was plugged in via psu directly using pci express 6 pin connecters and the whole pc would not boot i then took it out pc booted... this is a I5 system so no integrated then i used 6 pin to molex on the card and it booted along with the rest of the system the fan is spinning so i was buzzing until...no display from the card

    now do i have to install drivers? which i cant due to the fact there is no other gpu in the system or is it the card that is just messed up

    any help appreciated thanx for reading

    You will have to try another video card. If you get absolutely no video while booting, you have no other choice
