    Hi all. The above board no longer posts so I'm looking for a replacement. The PC powers on but there is no beep or output from the graphics card.

    Won't be overclocking, it just needs to be reliable to run a 4670, 8GB, GTX 970. As cheap as possible really.

    Many thanks.

    Its still under warranty so RMA it back to Gigabyte or retailer.

    Also try removing the GFX card and plugging directly into the board.

    Remove all unnecessary stuff too, use the bare minimum such as CPU+cooler, single RAM stick and the board+PSU.

    It was bought December 2013. The retailer said it's out of warranty?

    Have tried everything you have suggested but it's eactly the same.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the input. Found a good use for the RMA but still looking for a replacement for my main machine. No longer looking for a cheap one, up to £80 should be fine

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    It's a GA-Z87-HD3, not a 97 as previously stated.
