    No display on monitor or power to keyboard/mouse

    If the GPU has a short it could be dragging the power supply down causing low voltage. Or the power supply can't handle the load of the GPU! Cyber power is known to put cheap power supplies in to cut costs

    PC Case Grounded after Installing Graphics Card

    They make a 2 prong to 3 prong adapter but it assumes the screw on the outlet cover is grounded which is not always the case. Is your ground broke off your extension cord plug? if so you could be pluging it in wrong putting 110 volts on your case, very dangerous!!
