My new build (running perfectly for about 1 week) quit working this morning. I used it last night without issue, powered it down and went to bed. This morning when I turned it back on, the computer powered up normally, except that I got a blue screen on my monitor and DVI NO INPUT, then the monitor went into standby. I checked all of the connections. The computer seems to functioning normally from a mechanical standpoint. The MOBO is lit up normally. All fans are still running. The hard drive is spinning and loading data. The ethernet port is illuminated. I double checked all PCI-E connections on graphics card. I tried the alternate DVI port on card. No luck. I do not have another monitor so I cant troubleshoot the monitor. What should I do?
MOBO: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
RAM: 6GB of Corsair XMS3
HDD: 1TB Samsung Spinpoint
Video Card: Gigabyte GTX-460 1GB
Asus VH242 Monitor
No, not at all. I haven't done anything on this computer except install some utilities and surf the internet. Could there be something on the MOBO that caused it to fail? I'd like to identify that so I don't just go plug in a new card and fry that one too.
