[quotemsg=16407532,0,2051255]Hm. If you have any other graphics cards that require PCI-e power (no integrated graphics), or can borrow a card that has such requirements, try them and see if they work. It should rule out any faulty cables or PSU.
Also, please share the rest of your specifications. If you have a power hungry computer, it could be that the PSU hasn't got enough power to supply your whole system AND the graphics, but as integrated uses less power, it's capable of doing so.
Edit: Some organized steps:
1 - Share specs so I can determine if you have sufficient power for the card
2 - If 1 is all OK, try a different card that requires, or doesn't require (both would be good for accurate results) PCI-E cables.
Right now I have a list of 3 possibilities as causes:
- Not enough power to run the system
- Graphics card is bad
- PSU is bad.
Judging by your symptoms explained so far, I'm leaning towards not enough power/graphics is bad.[/quotemsg]
I have a pentium g3258 that is 53 w under full load( not as bad as it sounds), msi r9280x 250w, Kingston hyper x fury 8gb, 1 to wd blue hard drive, corsair cx600m psu, and a few fans. It may me tricky to find another gpu I can borrow to test but I will look. Thanks for your help.
