Not too long back I was watching a film when the screen suddenly went black and the computer rebooted itself.
Upon reboot I had to plug a VGA cable directly into the motherboard to get any picture on screen, since this has happened Ive ordered and installed I have a brand new motherboard and Graphics card but still the issue continues.. I'm baffled, could it be the PSU?
Screen randomly went black, since then no GFX card can be detected.
Installed NEW motherboard.
Installed NEW GFX card.
Installed NEW 750w PSU.
Tested known working RAM from another PC.
Go to your bios and disable on board video and restart, if that doesn't work and your stuck w/o video from the board and GFX just remove the cell battery from the board and unplug your PSU for 10-20secs to reset bios to Default so you can use the on board video again.
You should also check to see if your board supports that GFX, I can see its a new up to date board but some Nvidia cards don't like all Motherboards from older posts that i have seen.

Thanks, will give that a try now.
The odd thing is that this setup has worked for the past 3 months, all of sudden its stopped working.
