Today, I was on the internet listening to some music when suddenly my monitor went standby. The music didnt stop, it was still playing. I decided to shutdown my computer from the button. When it rebooted, still, no signal, screen completely blank.
I'm really sick of these problems. 1 month ago, Dell replaced my videocard because it has artifacts, and now I have this problem.
Anybody know what I should do? It isnt the monitor or dvi cable because I tried to plug it in another computer and it worked.
Changes are that Dell gave you a refurbished card (been a while since 8800GT vent out of production). I guess you will have to take it up with them unless you want to spend your own money on a new card.
Thanks for your comment. But when the monitor went to ''no signal'', I could hear the music going on, so that means that the videocard is working fine or not? To be honest, I really hope it is the videocard itself and not my harddrive.
I hear no beeps btw.
i dnt think that ur grphx card has any serious prob... cos ur pc was wrkin wen display went to sleep...
8800gt has more than one slot for connecting monitor...
ur vga port might b havin some prob...
thry usin some other port to connect the monitor and also try the grphx card in someone else's pc..
and did it boot up ftr restarting ur pc?
I just started up the computer again, and it worked until the windows logo showed up and the monitor went standby again with no signal. Then I shut off the computer with the front button and started it again, but no result. Even no windows logo or anything. Just no signal..
I dont understand.. It worked for about 15 seconds.
I called Dell and they told me to remove my videocard. In the middle when I tried to remove it, it went stuck and I tried my best to remove the damn videocard. Its half in my computer right now.
Dell sents a technician tommorow and he will replace my motherboard and videocard.
How much does the replacing of the motherboard and videocard takes?
