New pc turns on and off repeatedly...

by TrueSkillZ - 6/21/13 10:23 AM

Hello.

So I had ... old pc with core duo e6600 proccessor, 5750hd radeon and so on...

I got a new pc case, motherboard, cpu and a ssd... The problem is that when I connect the 5750hd gpu to the psu... the pc doesn't start... It just trys to start and restarts 1 sec after I clicked the turn on button, then it stays off for few seconds and turns on again and the same thing happens.

The setup is:
GA-Z77MX-D3H motherboard. [URL="http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4145#ov"]link[/URL].
i7 3770k (not overclocked). [URL="http://ark.intel.com/products/65523"]link[/URL]
Kingston (SV300S37A60G) 60GB ssd.
5750 HD asus radeon 1gb. [URL="http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/EAH5750_FORMULA2DI1GD5/"]link[/URL].
MEMORY DIMM 16GB PC12800 DDR3/HYPERX KIT2 KINGSTON ram.
Linkworld PSU LPM16-25 550W PSU.


Long story short... everything works besides the GPU. I turned off the gpu, plugged my monitor inside the internal graphics and now I'm writing from that pc, but I can't run the GPU.

My guess is that the 550W PSU is not strong enough for the new setup?

(The graphics card isn't broken or anything like that, I'm 100% because I used it 1h before getting my new pc assembled.)
