recently got a windforce GTX 970 from a friend and upon putting it in to my PC it does not display any video and the VGA LED on my motherboard stays lit. I have updated my BIOS and all drivers but nothing seems to work.
  • Checked the power connectors
  • cleaned off the connectors as well as the PCIE slot
  • tried another PCIE slot
the on board HDMI port works when there is no GPU installed.
The GPU works completely fine too, it was the second card in an SLI and was on hours before getting it. I even tried it back in his PC and it fired up fired up perfectly.
Not sure what else to do :/

Specs are:
Intel Core i5 9600k
gigabyte aorus z390 elite
thermaltake 750 watt psu
