Really irritating as ever since I've been messing about with PC builds, all I've had to do is plug and play. I suppose 15 years of that is a good run :D

Please post your full system specs - make and models of MB, RAM, SSD, PSU and Monitor(s).  May help someone identify if there is a hardware concern.

I assume, using the original card, you have been abe to update current BIOS?

Can you boot into the BIOS and get that displayed for a reasonable timescale, running the new card?  If so, have you then started in safe mode and deleted GPU drivers from in there using the utility I posted earlier?  Can you then reboot normally, but only a single monitor connected?  If you can get to the BIOS with monitor showing image then it's going to be windows.  If you can't even boot to BIOS it has to be hardware.

Do disconnect everything else you have attached to the PC non essential - only monitor, keyboard, mouse should be attached, not even network card whilst you run all these checks.  Ideally even disconnect any secondary internal SSD, HDD and even optical drives.  Get to real basics and minimise any other potential weird conflict.  Even today at work a secretary somehow bricked her computer during some update she swears never happened - it froze to the extent the BIOS detected an error and wouldn't even power off -  and until it was physically disconnecte from the power socket it couldn't be restarted

I can't get into safe mode or bios as I can't select the options to do so in windows-my keypresses aren't recognised ( I suspect the USB keyboard is the issue there). I've also tried booting without peripherals connected-no joy. Not tried booting with no other internal gubbins attached as that is a faff too far since then, if it booted, I'd have a working 2080 Ti but no (random) other drive or soundcard or summat else working.
I've not tried updating current bios as that is a faff to far with an additional frisson of 'chance of bricking the system' attached. :D
If I start the system up with the new gpu installed I just get 'no input'

Rammy can you ask MGP asked post your mobo as it could just be that this doesnt support the card.

otherwise again with the old card in disable fast boot or another option is hammering F12 as soon as you switch the pc on that might give you a chance of getting into the bios as again could just be a simple thing of a config change.

also a bios update wont brick your system.

Right I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that your pc is plugged into an extension lead with surge protection, I had exactly the same symptoms when I was upgrading stuff, went through the lot with Damien and it ended up being the extension lead, let us know.

I think Rammy uses a UPS type thing, so from Bop's thing, try plugging in direct to a wall socket.

But is the card adequately powered.  The old 980TI is no doubt power hungry and the new card may be slightly better but still needs a lot of juice.  Make sure it's getting it with all supplementary ports powered up.  If your MB has more than one GPU socket, try the second one.  Oh and have a look for any weird buttons on the GPU itself.  I  had one card that had some "overclock" function which was enough to kill it since that needed a further power connector and other settings.  But to be honest if you aren't prepared to faff by disconnecting stuff to rule things out your not going to identify the issue.

I've disabled fast boot and I simply can't get into BIOS (which is really irritating)

Good to know :tu:

Nope. Straight into the wall socket.

Can you try the card in another pc, home or work ?

Specs motherboard:  Expansion slots Two 16x PCI-E 2.0 slots (one 16x or two 8x), two PCI, three 1x PCI-E

Specs GPU:  PCI Express 3.0

Question is whether the GPU is backwards compatible.  But even if it will work, the motherboard won't keep up with the GPU.

Yep. I think I shall be ringing overclockers to return it. I'll probably go for a complete new build in the latter part of 2020.

Just buy a motherboard ;)
