One of the ram sinks may be a bit loose due to (IMO) inadequete sticky surface on bottom of sink. I got it on there as best I could and when I dove into the case this morning to do some initial troubleshooting I didn't notice any of the sinks on the floor of the case. I may have put a tad bit too much thermal paste on the chip as well but I stress my use of the word tad. I would say I put on two pieces of rice... I've had this thing humming along for about a month now with no problems.
1 Long, 2 Short = (im pretty sure) Display Device failure.
Am I f^&ed or what?
Any and all suggestions extremely appreciated!
Yeah, 1long and 2short is a display issue depending on the BIOS being used. If you've reseated the card and its still happening its most likely a bad card. Although it would help to test the card in another PC and/or another card in this PC. Good luck.
