Dell Dimension E510 Graphics Card Issue
Apr 21, 2010, 6:00 PM
Up until a few months ago ive been running a Nvidia 8600 GTS graphics card on my computer. Then my friend stuck a Ubuntu linux CD in my
computer and it just shutoff after shutting it down and trying to power it back on... My CD drive broke and my graphic card cant be plugged in
to turn it back on.. I purchased a new 700 watt power supply thinking the old 305 watt was the problem and it still cant be plugged in. Im
thinking the old power supply broke the Pci slot as well, on my computer.. If i do have the graphic card plugged in. The CD drive just keeps
blinking and making a noise, while the graphic cards fan just keeps revving, after doing that 3 times it stops and has a black screen.
Im pretty sure im screwed lol
Thank you all in advance

Did the PCI Slot break while you were removing the PSU? Like did it slip or how did it break?
