Hi all,

decided to replace my old GTX 1070 with an RTX 3070.

  1. Downloaded latest driver (460.89) from Nvidia
  2. Update bios
  3. Seated the RTX 3070 with all power pins connected (using a 850w PSU)
  4. GPU fan spins but no display
  5. Connected to integrated display - went into bios, and it doesn't detect anything in the PCIE slot
  6. When I switch back to my old GTX 1070, everything worked normally
Could this be a defect with the GPU? Was wondering why the fans were able to run still.
