Today upon waking up I CANNOT get my computer to power on. I press the power button and all I hear is a click echoing from the PSU and a slight buzzing noise if I hold down the power button. My red mobo LEDS which usually "breathe" in and out are now a solid red. There is also a soft intermittent screeching coming from around the power supply which gets worse whenever I try to push the power button. I try turning the PSU on and off, nothing. I then notice that my case fan LED's which are built into my cases (corsair 500r) preinstalled fans are still lit up slightly, even though the computer AND power supply have been switched off.
I flipped the switch on my power strip which got everything off. Then after I turned the power switch and PSU back on did the computer boot up finally.
After that I tried putting the computer to sleep, upon trying to wake it up with my keyboard I hear a click from the computer and my computer goes from sleep to off. (but with those case fan LED's still slightly glowing) I do the power strip reset and get it running again.
I shut down the computer in windows, same story.
Restarting the computer in windows works just fine.
After some trial and error, I found that my computer only does this when my graphics card is plugged into my monitor, the card is a 980ti. (the soft screeching from the PSU is still present) Other USB peripherals are just fine. Computer runs fine on the IGPU too, issue only happens when I'm using the 980ti.
My PSU also screeches like Kim Petersen whenever I just move my mouse across the desktop and running the IGPU.
Is my new PSU DOA? Did my card shit itself?
I'm RMAing the card as we speak and newegg is sending me a new PSU in advance, what just fucked my shit up so bad senpai?
