Question GPU fan spinning but no display

Jan 27, 2022
i have an older gpu radeon hd 6850. i tried to use it but when i power the pc the fans spin but the screen is black. I want to know if the gpu is not broken. any fix ?


Might be pushing your luck with that 450w psu, especially if it's a no-name/off brand or low quality psu that's as old as the rest of the system.

Make sure the cable to the monitor is in the gpu, not the motherboard and make sure the monitor is set to whichever connection you are using.

Is the monitor turning on and giving you a black screen or is the monitor not even switching to On?

Have you reset the cmos/bios by pulling the battery?

Does the prior card using the same connections work?
