Black Screen of Death - Check Signal Cable...

Hey guys, yesterday, my computer was off, and my room's electricity cranked out, and I had to go reset a breaker. The electricity comes back fine. However, when I tried to boot up my computer again, I got a "Check Signal Cable" error on my Samsung 204BW 20" LCD. The computer itself surprisingly boots up fine, although the screen is blank. I tried logging in (blind), and pressed enter, I get the Windows sound from my speakers, and I get the logoff when I Alt-F4 (again, blind) shut down. I tried the monitor using VGA with an older computer (it only has integrated graphics, and the monitor is fine. I was using DVI on my new rig, and tried VGA on that, no show. Now, I know the monitor is fine.....the Dvi cable should be fine too....(this is a 3-week old rig)....I'm running a Gigabyte EP35-DS3L, 2GB OCZ Plat, Rev2 DDR2 800, WD 640GB, Antec P182, and eVGA I'm tempted to blame it on the Graphic Card...maybe not sending signal?

  1. Your PSU or your GPU might have gotten damaged.
  2. I have a 30 day return policy on most of the stuff (including GPU)....but remember, my computer seems like it can still boot quite.....I'd like to get the 30 days are up in a few days...
