I'm a dummy and don't have a UPS.

We had a power outage a couple weeks back, and my tower no longer turns on with this GPU. The fans will start up for a bit, and then shut off. Sometimes they stay on, but nothing else happens. Can't get to BIOS or anything.

I tried this GPU in a different tower I had with the same results.

I tried my old GTX 760 in my "dead" tower, and it works great.

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks!

also please let me know if you need more info! I decided not to get into the rest of my PC's specs, given the fact that it's very obviously a GPU issue.
 
I have suffered much damage at my employment over the years from power failures. Unfortunately I think something in the GPU probably failed.

I've learned power failures can take things out pretty easily. They are my biggest problem as far as "things I can't control".
