So I built my new computer a couple days ago and everything was going wonderfully. I was running Metro: Last Light on maxed out settings with a constant 60+ FPS, just last night. Never was my graphics card going above 72 degrees under full load. It was sitting at around 40-45 at idle.

As everything was going great, I decided I'd leave my computer on overnight to download the remainder of my Steam library. Welp, when I woke up this morning, I went to check on the status of the downloads, and my card wasn't outputting anything. The fans on the card were spinning, and the case was just as cool as when I left it before, but I just had black screens in front of me.

The integrated graphics are working just fine. I turned off the computer and reseated the card and checked the power supply, everything looked fine, but still no output. Do you guys have any suggestions to see if I can save this card or should I just RMA it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Sounds like you need to RMA it.

Try a cleaning and fresh driver install. Disable ULPS after the new driver install.

Thanks for that suggestion. Disabling ULPS was something I hadn't yet tried. I just disabled ULPS and got the same result. I also tried different power connectors (hoping it was a faulty cable) with the same result.
