PC makes 6 beeps - GPU failure?
So i recently bought a new case because the one i had before was too small and all the wires were in one giant fluster ****. When i moved everything into my new case i turned on my pc and it beeped 6 times and both of my monitors said "no signal/no input".

I searched up what it meant and some websites said that its a GPU failure(which is what i think the problem is), there's no keyboard plugged in, there's a virus(which i doubt there is because i do a virus scan once every week), or my monitors are broken/have a problem. My monitors aren't broken or have a problem because one is connected to my xbox and the other is connect to my old graphics card which i switched out with the one that wouldn't work.

I have a MSI Radeon HD 7950 Boost edition(the one im using right now is a AMD Radeon HD 7570). I think i overclocked it too much because it says that the max you can OC it is up to 840 MHz but with MSI Afterburner I OCd to 1000+ MHz. I asked a few people that have this video card if they have had any problems with it and none of them said they have.
I have installed the latest drivers, there are no loose plugged cables, and my keyboard is plugged in if you were wondering.

I do have a warranty on it but I just want to know if i could fix it before I ship it.

Take out the card. Reseat it in the proper slot. Make sure the power cables are seated correctly. Reboot. Otherwise try the card in the next slot down.

I assume it was working well enough in the old rig? OCing gpu is always a crap shoot. Wish they all came with a clear cmos button

Next fail try the card in someone elses rig

Sadly my mobo only has 1 PCIe x16 slot. Too poor to upgrade it, money comes in slowly when you have no job.

Also i just took everything from my old rig and put into my new case.

Did you remember to plug in the molex power adapter of the 7950 video card?

double check all connections, user an ORANGE eraser on the contacts for the card to clean them off if they're dirty.

report back.
