So I recently just purchased a 750W Hive gaming power supply and an AM Radeon HD 7850 2GB video card... Installed... turn PC on and... NOTHING!

I Re-Installed it about fifty times now making sure I didnt forget anything... but still nothing. the fan and light comes on the video card but still nothing, I even switched out different PCI-E cords and video cords and still nothing...

When I reinstall the old 5480, or whatever it was, back into the machine it boots up just fine. (yes I have uninstalled the old drivers etc etc)

So did I just get the lame end of the stick and received a faulty video card or what?

My old 7850 did that to, but it also smelled like I was burning my toast.

If your old 5480 powers up ok then it sounds like it. If have access to another computer to try it out that would be nice.

Otherwise it sounds like it is a RMA or returner. I know that TigerDirect will take it back under 30 days.
