Exclamation GPU booting issue

Hi guys,

Had my rig adrift for periodic cleaning (coolant change etc), and when I've came to reboot my computer it will not boot. I began trouble shooting and discovered when my GPU (Sapphire Radeon HD7970) is not inserted into the PCI-e slot the system boots fine. When it is connected however the system powers for a split second then nothing.

Is this likely a fault with the PCI slot or the card itself?

Its worth mentioning that initially, before the strip down the card was inserted into slot 1, when i rebuilt I placed it in slot 2 unintentionally which is when the issue presented itself, i suspected it may because it was in the wrong slot so i switched it back over to its initial place but the problem persists.

Any help would be great.
Thanks folks.
