Default dead graphics card, or motherboard.

2 days ago I received my brand new powercolour amd radeon 6970, it has been working
fine until now, I was testing some code I had written, which crashed my ubuntu, and when I restarted it, it didn't boot. I have not tested the pci slot, as I am going to bed, but does anyone have any ideas? the drives and fans spin and all peripherals seem to work but there is no graphical output and no booting. boot is in a grub config, so a seperate boot partition specs:
corsair 650 TX psu
powercolor 6970
Gigabyte 870a-UD3 motherboard
4gb kingston (gaming) ram
1tb samsung hdd

Default Re: dead graphics card, or motherboard.

Make sure the card is plugged in properly still.

Also double check all the power ables are still in well.
