yesterday I booted up my pc, and it couldn't connect find my WiFi network. I did a restart and it turned back on and beeped 8 times. I did a bunch of research and concluded it was a gpu video error. So I bought a new gpu and installed it today. It booted up fine at first, but then It still wasn't finding a WiFi network. I re did the restart and it's beeped 8 times again...

Any tips on how to troubleshoot? It's all plugged in and correct. As I've said I've replaced the gpu and it's still happening. Should I look to get a new motherboard??
