I had to remove and reinstall my 9500 GS video card in order to fix a broken fan. After reinserting the card and starting up Vista, the screen always goes black after about 15 seconds. This occurs even if I hold F8/F10 etc and just sit on those menus.
So basically, the screen goes black regardless of is Vista is loading normally, or if I am just sitting at any of the menus that can be loaded right after startup.
Is my video card broken, or could it possibly be my motherboard as well? I want to upgrade to a new video card but that would be a complete waste if I have a more serious problem.
Or could there be another problem/solution? Thanks for any help!!
