I recently upgraded my stock computer by adding a new graphics card and a new PSU. 

But now for some reason I'm facing some problems with my pc.


Here is a video link of what's going on.



Can someone help me as to what's wrong? And how can I fix this?



My Specs are


CPU - Intel gen 3 i5 - 3450 Quadcore

GPU - Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 MSI

PSU - Corsair TX650 Enthusiast Edition (650 Watts)


10GB Ram

2TB Seagate Harddrive

Hi there,

Did you take the motherboard out of the case at all?

This sort of issue can be caused when the board standoffs are touching the wrong place. Also check the cpu is inserted properly and heatsink paste applied correctly.


Personally I would take everything out of the case and start with just the motherboard, RAM, and PSU. (Take precautions with power and be safe)  It looks like that board has on board graphics so use that while you perform your first tests.
