I'm new to building my own pc and all the stuff that comes with that, so I'm not quite sure how to find the problem.
My build is this: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/K0M0D0/saved/y9W3CJ
The problem is that the graphics card used to display correctly, but it would sometimes crash / freeze. This usually happened when I was just on desktop, not while in game. I ran the heaven benchmark software for about an hour without issues.
While I was trying to install the drivers and such to make it work correctly, suddenly my pc rebooted. Ever since, the graphics card refuses to show any image.
If I disconnect the graphics card and use the onboard gpu, I can boot into windows without issues. Using the GTX 1080 however, the screen just stays black.
Any help regarding this issue would be greatly appreaciated!
EDIT: I just now put the old graphics card into my new system, and this one seems to work alright.
Could my new card be fried?
