It was running fine yesterday until I plugged the hdmi from the card to the tv today. I didn't try starting it up today until i plugged the TV into it. haven't tried running my old video card but I took out the new card and tried to turn it on. The light on the motherboard lit up and the on button was steady orange and wouldn't start. I didn't smell anything but to be honest I don't smell as well as I used to and I stink from work. I hope the Amazon/manufacturer warranty for the card covers this lol.
If it's any good info I did have to bend down and remove the rubber protector over the hdmi. Also had the via plugged in at the same time but not hooked to the monitor.
