Hello,

I was plugging in a new power bar into an outlet. Thought it was off but it turns out it had power going to it. When I plugged in a monitor it tripped the circuit.

when I unplugged everything and checked the power bar I noticed that the grounded light was not lit.

plugged everything in to a grounded socket and pc was black screening. After unplugging the GPU and plugging HDMI into integrated graphics it boots up fine with a signal.

Is my GPU likely dead? Is it likely that it was the ungrounded outlet that caused this? Will RMA cover me for a replacement GPU?

Thanks

Update:

I can’t get a display unless integrated graphics is selected in the BIOS. However when it is and the GPU is plugged in and powered it shows up in device manager.

However when I try to plug the HDMI out of the MB and into the GPU I still get no input signal.

losing my mind here. Anyone have any advice?

thanks!
