Hi all. OK so my friends system is getting the no signal thing and I thought it was the video card. I tried the video card in my rig and it works fine.
I know it could be the psu but I just noticed that the heatsink fan starts up with the system and then stops. I was hoping that was a give away to the problem.
OK here are the specs.
HP pavilion a 6530f
amd phantom x3 8450 triple core
640 gig hard drive
geforce GTS 250 1GB
550 watt raidmax psu
vista 64 bit
