Hello I have an issue.

So these are my specs.

MSI Z97 Gaming 3 Motherboard
Intel Core i7 4790K
Corsair Obsidian 750D Case with Window
MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4GB
Samsung 850 Pro EVO Series 120GB SSD
Toshiba 7200RPM 1TB Hard Drive
Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 16GB 1600hz
Corsair Modular 600W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply


So my GPU is not contributing at all atm to games or pc at all.

My Graphics Card:
* Is currently on and running within the PC
* The PC recognizes it within the hardware.
* It has up-to date drivers.
* I have tried taking it out. Running without it, disabling the integrated graphics and then inserting it. - Still no go.
* Also tried BIOS, CMOS and still nothing.

I've searched the web about it and the most common is to enable within the Nvidia control panel. Though the most recent control panel does not have an option to switch between the different graphics cards.

It was working yesterday and now it won't budge.
I don't know if it's bottle necking.....though a 4790k should be able to run with a 980 with ease.

Any solutions?

You've plugged the DVI/ Displayport in the CPU interface? if not reinstall windows? Don't really know what's wrong just some suggestions.

Try uninstall all nvidia and intel display drivers, then install nvidia drivers after

Maybe try power flushing the system? (switch off your computers turn the PSU switch off while still plugged in and hold the power button for ~1 minute)

What resolution you running in game? could be just a CPU bottleneck.

What's telling you the GPU isn't working the way it should? Forgive me if I'm wrong but assuming you are you are basing your results off CSGO, CSGO is CPU bound not a good representation of GPU Power, depending on the settings you use the GPU could be doing almost nothing or a bit.

Download Furmark and do the 1080p pre set benchmark and see what happens, GPU usage should be around 99%, don't be alarmed at the temps doing this the cards can handle around 100 degrees Celsius. Tell us your results or any throttling.

he is using a 4790k, not many games gain any advantage by using a higher cpu than that
i wouldnt assume hes basing results off csgo either


@Misha im going to say if youve tried the things alraedy suggested, its time to RMA
sounds like a faulty card
which model is your power supply? if it's cx you may also want to replace that

the power to you gfx card. i hope you used 2 different leads and not the 2 adapters on 1 lead? power loss can cause issues
