If your board has onboard graphics, remove the GPU and run off that to see if it makes any difference.
ignore my previous post, I was able to boot up tonight several times without my video card and fairly rarely with it, but I was stuck using on board graphics everytime. I ran diagnostics on everything and it checks out. Ive also heard you can make it into/past POST with a faulty video card. So im pretty sure at this point this card I have now is on its last leg. Any last minute thoughts before I buy a new one?
Thank you very much for your help.
