biostar tforce p965
1 raptor 74
enermax liberty 500w (32a to 34a...i ferget)
e6300 (@ 3ghz)
Got the system in december of 2006. Overclocked it to 3ghz no problem. Temp never got over 55c under load.
This morning i reboot. I get no Video. The LED display on the motherboard is saying it is a vga issue. So i clear the bios and still teh same result.
So i go out and buy a Geforce 8600gts. And the system runs fine. I can play games for hours.
Unfortunatly im not satisfied with teh performance of the 8600gts, so i return it and get a 8800gts.
Now im getting the same results i was getting with my ati 1950 pro. No video and the mobo lights indicating a vga issue.
So here are the only things i can think can be wrong
1. My 1950 is bad and i got unlucky and got a bad 8800gts.
2. My powersupply is going bad.
3. My motherbaord is going bad.
Any other ideas?
Update: I put a 750 watt BFG PSU in and the system still show video. So im going ro exchange the video card and see if i still have issue. If i do, then perhaps its the PCIE slot going bad on the mobo? Can;t handle high power cards anymore
