So I had 2 asus gtx960 in sli, everything was working fine. I got a deal on a used gtx970, installed it and one of my case fans started making a ticking sound and my Samsung monitor started switching between hdmi and display port. I checked to make sure the card was seated properly and checked the psu connection, everything looked good, but the same issues continued.

I didn't set the defaults for the graphics card in bios before swapping the cards, which I thought was the issue, so I reinstalled the 2 gtx960s and even though the case fan noise went away, the monitor continued to swap inputs.

I tried all display ports, even tried an hdmi cable and same thing. Even tried hooking up to my TV and the TV shows no signal.

Could this used 970 have messed something up?

I tried entering bios, but can't because of this issue, so I can't make any changes.

Another thing I noticed is it will restart sometimes when trying to switch inputs on the monitor,

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Just tried removing cmos battery to reset defaults, but same issue.

Also removed gpus and hooked up to mobo hdmi and still nothing.

System info:

Evga Bronze 700 psu
Asus z97-pro gamer mobo
I7-4790 cpu
Kingston HyperX 16gb ram

Fixed the issue....

Swapped out the CMOS battery with a new one and it fixed the video output issue. The fan noise was because the graphics card was was to heavy so had to push it up then retighten the screws and it fixed the fan noise. At first I thought it was the rear case fan, but it was the gpu fan.
