It may mean that your video card driver is corrupted. Pull the card, start the computer, and remove the video drivers. (If you know how, remove them from the backup directories, too, just to be safe.) Then try to reinstall the video card just like it was new.

What does power down pc and plug in cabkes for gpus mean, even though they are already plugged in bad card?

Added a new graphics card? Today, high-end gaming graphic cards (GPUs) need separate power from the computer's power supply; they take more power than the motherboard can give them through the connector under the card. Your power supply should have separate connectors that match what's on the new video board.

Shut your computer down, pull the plug, open it up, and connect the power supply to the card, and then you'll be fine.

There is no power distribute to the computer the low voltage power supply clicks put no power is distribute to the rest of thecomputer

There's a lot of reason why your computer is not turning on. If you said that when you trying to turn on your computer it sound beep or clicking. Try to feel or look at the back of your system unit if your power supply fan turning. If it's turning there is no problem with your power supply unless you test it with multitester. If no display but your computer is on, it means that you have to check your memory or video card try cleaning pin of your memory and video card. First you have to electro static discharge by holding the chasis of your computer, because the computers component is very sensitive to electro static. Good Luck

PC is dead

I assume you installed the new graphics card already. Did you check if your power supply could handle the increased power? If your power supply is rated at 350W or less, I'd upgrade to at least 400W.

Also, ensure that the graphics card, if it has a power connector, is connected properly to the power supply, and that in the process of installing it, you didn't accidentally remove any of the power connections to your motherboard.

The Green LED lets you know that it is receiving power from the wall, and that the problem lies in the computer somewhere.
