4870x2 gets 3 red lights Tags: Graphics Cards Light Graphics Last response: December 15, 2010 11:23 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Anonymous a b U Graphics card December 14, 2010 4:20:00 AM Ok guys I really need someone to help me out here! Let me try to describe to you what is hapening... One day I press the On-Button and my pc wont boot up. - I can hear/see that all fans including GPU fan are working. - On monitor I see "No signal" -4870x2 has 3 red lights on it. Now if my card would be dead, then why does it boot up like 1 out of god knows howmany times... What I did: - Changed the cables for the spare once - made sure everything is connected - updated BIOS - put my card into another PCI slot - removed mobo battery When pc is on it can work for days but then when I turn it off and try to turn it back on it gets 3 red light on the graphics card and "no signal" on monitor. Also when I just do a restart it boots up just fine. It's working right now after i was trying for like 5 hours to turn it on. I have looked around google for hours, people either have to weak power supply or they have 3 red lights right after plugging the card in for the first time. maybe the heat sensor inside the card has broke or something?
