Hey guys I have a very old system that recently died. Whenever I try to boot it the video card blinks blue once and nothing else happens. At first I thought this was a dead gpu so I bought a new one, but same thing. Is the power supply fried?

Without informing us what you've got to work with, we're(the community) essentially flying blind here. Please include the specs to your build like so:

include the age of the PSU apart from it's make and model. If you got relpacement parts for the system, add them as well so we know what you've replaced/swapped out.

Apologies. The system is very very old and is just used for browsing mainly but I'll try to list everything!

CPU: amd phenom II 955

Motherboard: asus m4a79xtd evo i believe

Ram: some ripjaws? really can't remember

SSD/HDD: I think a regular samsung hard drive

GPU: had a 5770, bought a rx 580 but both just blink blue and computer won't boot

PSU: corsair tx650w

Chassis: cm storm scout

OS: windows 7

Monitor: acer 24''

The entire system no joke is probably 10-12 years old. Been very reliable so never touched it.
If I need to replace the psu, what is a cheap and fitting one to buy for the rx 580? Thanks in advance.
