Graphics card runs when computer is on without the monitor, but turns off as soon as the monitor turns on

My graphics card is a Gigabyte NVIDIA Geforce 1050ti GTX. I haven't had any problems with it before or had this problem with any other graphics card.

The graphics card worked fine for about 7 months until it spontaneously turned off just as I opened Dota 2. It had run Dota 2 before so I don't think it is the cause of the problem. I tested the PC without the monitor on and it was fine, but as soon as I turned on the monitor the graphics card turned off. I tried in every GPU slot on the motherboard and I have checked all cables and the power supply.

I have read somewhere about adjusting the BIOS settings but I'm not sure what to do.

Other parts:

  • CPU: Intel core i5-7400 Gen 7
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte B250M-D3H
  • Power supply: Thermaltake Smart 500W
  • RAM stick: HyperX Fury DDR4 *GB
  • SSD: Crucial MX500 2.5 inch 500GB

 

Does anyone know what to do?

Did you check power settings on the NVIDIA Control Panel?

Confused by the OP question.

 

What exactly do you mean that the graphics card "turns off" when a monitor is plugged in?  How do you know the graphics card "turns on" when you unplug the monitor?  Do you get POST/boot screens with the monitor plugged in?  Have you tested with the motherboard video output to rule out a monitor issue?

 

Just confused by video card "turns off" when monitor is plugged in but "turns on" when monitor is unplugged.

It reads like some Riddle in one of those old classic Adventure games...

Does anyone know what to do?

  1. CPU: Intel core i5-7400 Gen 7
  2. Motherboard: Gigabyte B250M-D3H
  3. Power supply: Thermaltake Smart 500W
  4. RAM stick: HyperX Fury DDR4 *GB -- so what does that mean? "*GB" short for unlimited RAM?
  5. SSD: Crucial MX500 2.5 inch 500GB
  6. What is model number of monitor?
  7. What is cable connector to monitor?
  8. What is O/S?
  9. What is video driver version?
  10. Do you mean turning on monitor powers down the computer?

One possible idea is that by accident you have set the refresh rate on the monitor to something it can't support, like 75 hz etc.

 

This is not really supported by the facts, but right now, your set of facts is straight out of the mouth of Kellyanne Conway (i.e. garbled beyond sane boundaries of logic in a pleasant internal fantasy world of post-facts, post truth concepts that are dressed up in pretty clothes to simulate something that might perhaps maybe hopefully matter to real humans if they consume enough substance)

      So I bought the silver S8 and received it yesterday, but one major difference is that with smart view (screen mirror > Samsung 4K TV) doesn't show apps like Plex (720p or 1080p) in fullscreen, there's a border around the top and sides on the TV. Didn't have this with the S6edge+ 1080p does look better, but again, isn't full screen like with the S6edge+
       
      I looked around online and haven't found anyone complaining about that, but forcing an app full screen didn't help either. Anyone have a trick to force a full picture on the TV?

      Ok, so from a past couple of hours or so, the processor is really behaving weird. It gets to full 100%, when I am browsing in chrome, and stays at 100% until I open the task manager and it comes down to 50 - 60 %


      Should I be worried?
      Regards...

      I'm currently in the process of looking for a case for my new computer, I want something sexy like the Corsair Obsidian 650D/800D, but I need something with 2 120MM fan intakes on the back and cant see to find one like that. I need it so that i can get THIS and THIS, any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
