    HI GUYS....... i replaced AMD radeon 6750 with a used MSI GTX 68O to my i7 2400 on gigabyte z68x-ud4-b3 with Corsair 850w PSU,
    It did not detect the card at first so i updated the Basic Graphic drivers from the Device manager.
    It then showed that the Nvidia 680 is installed and the resolution was all good.
    i loaded the fortnite, it was updating the game, when i went for a cup of tea........... i came back and the screen was all black..... just like that...... card was running but no display.
    I connected the ASUS Radeon 6750 back and it works fine. so the slot is ok.
    i connected the MSI back but no display and no boot ( but the fans run) , changed again with AMD and that one is ok.......
    Wondering what happened while i was on a tea break....... Im not a pro so please advise ................

    Now when ever i connect the GTX card the blue lights dont come up immediately, rather the fans run and then around 10 seconds the blue GPU lights come up and the fans start to spins in the other direction they started with. I did not notice this the first time so maybe its normal... i dont know.

    Please help

    Im left with a GPU not letting to even boot the system. ( the HD dosent make those burpy sounds.. )
