My friends power supply started smoking and sparking while he was gaming.
It was unbranded and rated for 450W.

I went and picked up a EVGA BQ 750W for his system.
I went to test everything and I got a VGA light and no signal.
Double checked connections and I even reseated it. Produced the same results.

I put my old 1060 3gb in his system and it booted to desktop.
I went back to the RX 580 and it still wouldn't boot and I still got the light

during this entire process, the fans on the RX580 were spinning.

So I swapped back to the 1060 so I could wipe the drivers and attempt again.
I put back in the RX580 and still got the same result.
I then tried it with a different motherboard and CPU. (Aorus B450 elite and ryzen 5 2600X)
Still got the same result with no signal, but when I put in the 1060 it booted normally.

I then took it home with me to try the RX580 in my system. And it boots up like nothing ever happened.

Tried to boot the 2600x, then update the motherboard bios and reset all to default after updating bios? and test it on top of a box?
