do you have the PCI-e power cables plugged into the card?

Also do not plug something into a power on/ running computer, you have the possibility of damaging the socket or item being plugged in.
I have both PCI-e power cables plugged into the card yes. I also have tried starting it up with one 8 pin, then the other, and with both disconnected.
