HD5970 works on my pc but not another

Question asked by mistxstorm on Apr 8, 2020



I was using my HD5970 on my main rig until my 5500XT came home.

After installing my new gpu, I tried to install the HD5970 on an other computer, but unfortunately it does not boot at all. So I tried on a third computer, no more luck. What can cause this, knowing that I tried power these 3 rigs with a 530W PSU ?


My main rig :

Ryzen 3 1200

Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming

8GB Ram

Thermaltake 530W PSU


The second rig :

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500

Asus P5QL Pro

8GB Ram

Corsair 450W PSU (i tried use the 530W)


The third rig:

AMD Athlon II X2 255

ASRock N68S3-UCC

8GB Ram

Antec 480W PSU (i also tried use the 530W)


What can cause the two last rigs not to boot, even with a capable PSU ?

Thank you
