Hi! I recently bought a GTX 1660 for my computer. Upon startup, there are 6 long beeps and no activity on the screen. I'll list my parts

MoBo - Foxconn 2ADA
CPU - i7-3770
500w PSU
16 GB RAM

I initially tried to reset BIOS by taking out the battery, waiting a few minutes, then putting it back in. Same thing.

I tried to turn on Legacy mode in the BIOS settings but unfortunately, I don't see the option to do that. Could it be that my MoBo is too old?

SOLVED!

all i had to do was update my BIOS. even though my Mobo didnt have an update for windows 10, i updated it to the windows 8 version and no beeps! started up and am installing the drivers right now ! :)

did you get the gpu second hand or brand new?
second hand. ebay site was well rated and this is what the description said.

"R2/Ready For Resale. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND OVERCLOCKING PRODUCTS NOR DO WE TEST FOR OVERCLOCKING CAPABILITIES. Item passed testing through POST (Power On Self Test) and 30 Minutes of DiretcX 11 Unigine Heaven and FurMark burn-in. "

the fans run and stuff but i wouldn't be surprised if the GPU is cooked. is there a way to tell?
