I have i7 6700 cpu, I just bought a new GPU (GTX 1070) and installed it.

Everything seem to be ok, the led on the GPU is fine but when I plug the monitor to it it wont display anything...

(I have Asus H170M-Plus motherboard if it helps)

What I tried based on the internet:

  • Update BIOS
  • Changed the setting on the motherboard to "Main Display - PCIE" (When I do that, the BIOS just ignore this and put "CPU" back in...)
  • using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) to uninstall the previous GPU (the built-in one, didn't have a gpu before on this machine) driver.
  • installed the current drivers from nvidia site.
  • Checked if everything is connected correctly
  • Removing the GPU and putting it back (to confirm it is placed correctly)

When I install the Nvidia drivers btw, when it completes, I press restart and windows wont load at all, so I go to safe-mode and again using DDU to uninstall the driver..

So, what am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

(Windows 10)

By the way, I have 700W, so power is not the problem

  • What other versions of the driver have you tried?

  • I actually didn't, I'll try to search for other versions right now and update (Found one, trying 376.33, one before the latest)

  • By the way, the display is keep going to the CPU, like the GPU is not there (I have one monitor connected to the GPU and one to the CPU)

  • Have you tried lowering the resolution on windows? I've seen issues before where the resolution will max out and the screen cannot accommodate for it
