    I have a HP envy 700-049 Core i7 12gb ram Radeon 8570 HD gpu. i put a new gpu (Radeon r9 380 4G) in and turned it on. It started and gave me the blue screen with the :( error. It would then restart and show the same error. After trying to repair it, I put the old gpu back I made sure all the wires were still connected and turned it back on. I gained access to the bios and made a full factory reset of the computer restoring it to Windows 8. It was a black screen my back lit keyboard turned on but not the num lock light still endlessly restarting. I then took out the old gpu and left it empty and turned it unplugged the video cable from the internal gpu while it was on and let it reset after 4-6 times I would plug it back in and let it restart a few times. About 25% of the time it would boot to Windows and everything would be fine. But if I turned it off I would have to go through unplugging it waiting and chancing it every time it turned off.

    It was introduced in June 2013 and sold in Canada and came with Windows 8 64-bit.
    It came with an AMD Radeon HD 8570 graphics card which uses 50W.
    It came with a 460W power supply(unknown brand name and model number).

    The AMD Radeon R9 380 graphics card uses 190W.
    It appears to require a "minimum" of a 500W power supply, but 850W or more is recommended.

    It still doesn't explain why it's not turning on after I took the you out

    If you have already done the troubleshooting you have posted, there really is only one explanation; you damaged something while working inside the case. That or just knocked something loose. Go back and recheck your work AND make sure you reseat ALL pw connectors to the mb ie atx and aux pw connectors. From the pic of the mb on the support page, it does not look like there is an aux pw connector however do check and reseat all pw connectors.

    Just my opinion however trying to upgrade a hp, dell or other big box system is an exercise in futility. Big box systems just do not have the quality parts necessary for a gaming system ie heavy duty cooling, heavy duty capacitors/voltage regulators, etc. If you want a gaming system, then either build one or have a local shop do the build for you.

    Make sure your local shop:
    a: is not a big chain shop with untrained?? experts.
    b: they know it is going to be heavily used for gaming.
