Card burned or not? Tags: Graphics Cards Power Graphics Last response: January 13, 2010 6:05 AM in Graphics & Displays Share banrobertkaroly January 11, 2010 10:04:27 AM Hi, I`ve got a 8600GTS. When I power on my PC it starts(but doesn`t shows anything) and after 2 seconds turns off and then automaticly back on and it goes so on. With other graphics cards it works fine. Any ideas how could I test my card if its burned or not?
