So yesterday i attempted to upgrade my graphics card from gtx 950 to gtx 1060.
I removed my old drivers and proceeded to install the new card.
My pc turned on as normal, fans on my graphics card started spinning but my screen received no signal.
I ensured everything was plugged in correctly (and it was) but the same thing happend again.
I removed the gpu and turned on my pc which fixed the problem. This led me to believe it was a problem with my psu not being able to generate enough power so i decided to use my old card for now but the same thing happend.

Kindly provide FULL PC specs, detailing this current issue. What's the BIOS version of your motherboard ? Which PSU do you have ?

Please supply the following system details/information:

(Complete System Specs)
-CPU make and model# (clock speed/voltage, type of cooler, and "Core" temperature @ idle and load)
-Motherboard make & model# (include Bios version if graphics card is not recognized or you are having stability issues)
-RAM (amount, clock speed, model#/link of kit, configuration)
-Graphics card(s) make and model# (clock speed, voltage if modified, Driver version and GPU temp both @ idle and load)
-Power supply make,model#, "AND" age (note if using 110V or 220V A/C input)
-HDD/SSD configuration (ie: Raid setup/ back up/ OS drive/etc..)
-Case/Chasis make,model# (fan make, model#, and configuration if having thermal issues)
-Operating System (If using Windows note Framework and service pack version)
-Monitor make, model#, and resolution (If model# is unknown list resolution and refresh rate)

*If the unit is a "laptop" or "All-in-one" system you must note the make and model# of the unit. Be sure you are ALWAYS using the OEM/manufacturer's Driver updates for the unit.

*If "Crashing":
-Note the nature of the "crash" in detail, as there are several definitions for the word "crash".

*If "performance" related issue:
-Note the "exact" point in which the performance reduction occurred (ie: After Windows update, After Bios update, After Driver update, After thermal system shutdown, After Hardware change/upgrade etc...)

*For diagnostic purposes please disable the following:
-Any/all Antivirus/ Anti-malware software
-Any/all OSD monitoring software
-ALL overclocks outside of factory spec
.

Hi,
Can we have the your full system specs (shown below)?
MB:
CPU:
PSU: (Including wattage)
RAM:
etc.
You're saying your PSU doesn't have enough power, so including the wattage would be nice to know.
Is there any way you can test the graphics card in another device? If it works on a different PC, then the GPU isn't the problem, could be the PSU like you said. Also, did you connect the external power from the PSU? Usually, the GTX 1060 needs a 6 pin power supply so you need to make sure that's plugged in as well.

Yes i did plug the card to one of 6 pin power outlets.
And no i dont have another pc to test it with.
Personaly i dont think its a psu issue because my old card used to work just fine but my knowledge of this topic is minimal
