I recently upgraded my pc almost entirely only keeping the same motherboard and cpu. I didn’t think setting everything up would be very difficult but it turned out to be hell as I bought the NZXT H510 Elite as my new case as all the wiring was stupidly over complicated for a new builder like myself. I managed to get everything working overall except the RGB on two of my NZXT fans (I swapped out the stock ones for an additional 2 RGB fans for a total of 4 RGB fans) but that issue is for another day. To the main point my GPU isn’t working properly. After turning the system on I am given a display and everything else works fine. I look at the specs and the computer recognises that it’s a RTX 2070 Super. But after a few seconds from booting the fans both stop spinning and the light for the GPU never even turns on, but my screen is still on and working fine and the computer still recognises the GPU even though it seems like it’s completely dead. What can I do to fix this?!
GPU: RTX 2070 Super
Motherboard: Asus prime b250 plus

On a lot of modern graphics cards including yours the fans do not spin unless a preset temperature is reached. What you have described with your card is normal behavior.
