No Display/Stuck During Startup

Hi all!

Hope you can help me with this one.

My problem is kind of weird (for me I guess). Recently I just disassembled my VC to clean some dust off and when I put it back in, there is no display.

What's happening is as follows:

When I have my video card in, there is no display. But I can hear that the windows start up did go through.

Now...

When I try to remove my video card to use my on board gpu, it doesn't go through start up. It always get stuck in "Starting windows" screen. It does go through to safe mode though.

System:
CPU: AMD II x4 635
MOBO: Gigabyte 880GMA-ud2h
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws CL9 (9-9-24) ddr3 1600
PSU: XDX PRO650w
HDD: 500GB WD 7200rpm

Regards,
Omis

Try booting with one DIMM.

I'm not really familiar with DIMM. Does that mean try using one of my RAMs? If it is, I already did and same result.

If you are trying to boot using the onboard video, you must go into your BIOS and switch on the onboard video card, as you were using a add on card before.

What I actually want is to use the VC I have. I only tried to boot using the onboard video just to know where could be the problem.

Just an update...

I was able to access BIOS earlier without my VC.

At this point I would enter your BIOS and make sure how it is set... I would set it to the onboard graphics for a test... if that works then try your add in card after changing BIOS to reflect that.

Okay, did that. Still the same, no display when VC is inserted.

What I also did is I entered safe mode and cleaned my GPU driver. Now it boots to windows WITHOUT the VC, but still no display when VC is used. Everything seems good without the VC. Does this mean there is a problem with it?

I would be looking for a new video card... how old is that PSU? If you get a more power hungry video card you may want to think of a new PSU.

650w of PSU is already more than enough I believe for a single 6850. Anyway, I would go over to a friends house to check the parts I have on his computer. Thanks for the help anonymous1 and to all those who replied! Cheers!
