I am experiencing problems with my computer. I've read through some other threads but can't see to find an answer that can help me.
When i turn on my computer the monitor is black and does not seem to be receiving a signal but i can hear the computer starting up. I think i've isolated the problem to my GeForce 8800 GTS, for the time being i'm plugged into my integrated gfx card and it is working fine.
I think it may also be possible that it could be a mother board problem in the pci slot but i really have no idea. I've removed the gfx card and examined it for any scars, burns, ruptured capacitors, etc and i dont really see anything. I have also examined the motherboard am at a loss for what is wrong and how to fix it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I dont think i disabled the integrated gfx but the card was working for about a month or so.
AMD ANthon 64 3500+
Evga 8800 GTS 328mb
HP/Compaq motherboard name: AmberineM-GL6E
HD -200 GB SATA 7200 rpm
PSU - Roswelill 480W
Why would i be able to run the gfx card with no glitchs for over a month and it all of sudden stop working? I dont understand why a powersupply would be the source to this problem. Also, the fan still continuously goes on the gfx card...not sure if that means the card is still getting enough power tho.
I just want to make sure i'm doing the right thing before i go to all the trouble of getting a new powersupply.
Also... if this is the case-
What powersupply would you recommend? Keep in mind i am upgrading to a Anthon 64x2 3800 very soon and i dont want to spend a whole lot of extra money on a powersupply that does more than it needs to.
