Computer with HIS HD 3850 IceQ 3 Turbo cannot boot Help!!!

Hi guys,

I'll be straight to the point.

My specs:-

AMD X-2 2.51 Ghz
Kingston PC667 2Gb RAM
160GB W.Digital H/D
Abit NF-M2PV Mobo
2 12V Casing Fan
450 W Max PSU
HIS HD 3850 IceQ Turbo 512Mb DDR3

This setup was working fine until last weekend, the screen turned black while i was going online. Tried restarting. Then, when I pushed the power button, the power stays for only 1 sec and after that the power light didnt even blink and wont start again.

Unplugging the power cable and re-plug again wont work.
There was no sound detectable. Heat in the casing was normal.

But, when I removed the graphic, and used the built-in graphic card, the computer works fine.

Can anyone help me with this? I dunno whether its my PSU or my graphic card. How would you know if the graphic card is fried?

(Please forgive my bad english)

  1. Do you have another PC to switch out parts in?

    The 3850 requires a power connection directly from the PSU...did you forget to plug it in?
  2. Tried the g/c on another pc but still wont work. Same problem. The power light blinked for only 1sec and just died out. There were no sounds and it just died suddenly during a non-intensive session.

    It was working perfectly fine before. Any ideas?
  3. Sounds like a bad card. Nothing really to do. RMA if you can.
  4. OK. Thnks for ideas. Anyway, my friend told me that card could have been fried....there goes my 399...sigh....
