Hey everyone!

So a few days ago I tried turning on my PC in the morning and I didn't get any display signal until I switched the DVI cable to the motherboard.

The GPU lights are on, fans are off, and I couldn't get a signal no matter what, it doesn't get detected by windows or the BIOS and I have exhausted all the software solutions like updating drivers, windows, CMOS reset, and BIOS update, etc.

So I took my GPU to my local PC shop to get it tested and it worked! and when I took it back home, installed it back on my PC and it worked! for a while tho...

After I installed the drivers and played some games, I turned off my pc, then turned it back on the next day, and... the same problem came back.

Does anyone have any idea on what might be causing this? After looking around online some suggested that it might be a PSU issue, that's why I contacted corsair for an RMA since it's still under warranty.


PC Specs:

MB: MSI Z-370 A PRO
GPU: 1060 6gb EVGA
CPU: i5-8400
RAM: 2x8gb Corsair
PSU: TX550M Corsair
1xWD 1TB HDD
1xWD 500gb HDD
1x Samsung 500gb SSD

Thank you all!
