No Signal When Installing GPU Into New Build

Jan 5, 2017 9:04AM PST

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Processor
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury Black 8GB DDR4-2133
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Windforce OC
PSU: SeaSonic G 550W 80+ Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
OS: Windows 10

I am currently working on my first PC build. During the process, I installed everything but the gpu and made sure that everything was up and running and installed windows 10. Once I made sure of this, I installed the gpu. When I booted up the PC again, I don't get any signal to the monitor from either the gpu or MOBO HDMI. Also, the fans on the gpu don't spin. I have made sure that I connected the power supply to the 6-pin connector on the gpu card. When I take out the gpu, the PC boots and runs fine. I've been working on this for about 10 hours now and I cannot find a way to properly get the PC running with the graphics card installed. How should I go about fixing this?

Thank you

That gpu has temp controlled fans.
There is a very good chance they won't spin if the card is cold.

Try another card in the slot.
Try that card on a different machine.
Take the card to your local pc shop and have them test it.

Problem with GPU installing

Most probably you have single GPU slot. In that case check with another one. If the issue remains then problem could be GPU 6 pin power cord. Did you use another card with that power socket?
