Pulling out my desk to sort some cables out and i seemed to forget that i had my case on the floor under the desk. I had it sideways and long story short i knocked the damn thing over! This made a massive bang obviously.

The problem i have now is that i cant get any video output from my graphics card. I would like some pointers on what to do to find out what if anything is broken.

I have checked all parts and connectors and cannot see any damage, and i checked everything was plugged in to make sure nothing has come loose.

I have plugged the graphics card in the other PCI-E slot to see it would work then, Nothing! :(

When i turn on the computer t seems to power up, Lights are the fan goes and the HDD seems to spin, my monitor just says " No Signal" wen on the PC channel.

my specs:
9850 phenom be
8gb ocz reaper ddr2
150gb raptor x hd
asus m3n32 mobo
coolermaster 750 psu
5770 powercolor + model

Cheers for any help posted.

If you need any morew information please let me know. Thanks

More about broken
  1. Do you have another gpu to test or onboard video that you can test?
  2. Not too hand thats the thing i have a PCI card so i can test those slots but i cant test the card and i cant test the PCI-E slots. So unless i waste money on a card or a motherboard im stuck.

    Is there no other way i can test / check the mobo and GPU? some way of checking for damage on the contacts?

    Would it be a good idea to take the computer completly apart and have a look at every part in detail?
  3. Oh an the mobo doesnt have on board video!
