Hi guys , recently i have been experiencing some weird events. When i want to start my PC i have no image no weird beeps nothing , i have an 8800 GT video card with 6 pin power connector . I was thinking that it failed , then i went to a friend borrow his gts 250 and plugged it in and still nothing , now i am scared that i may have possibly kill both video cards , the weird thing is that with an old 8500 GT that does not require any power connectors works fine . Please tell me what is wrong with my computer .
The problem just came along later...and suddenly all worked fine until now. Here are my specs : Processor AMD Athlon 5200+ 2.77 Ghz ,
2 GB RAM DDR2 ,
PSU Rasurbo SilentPower DLP-45.1 450W ,
video card 8800 GT and my friends gts 250 that does not work , now I am using a 8500 GT and works fine ,
Motherboard : MSI K9N SLI V2 (MS-7390)
I just arrived from a friend and after i test the 2 video cards it turned out that they are working with no problem , so the problem in my PC is the PSU ?
I would guess either PSU or motherboard - though if you said a card that didn't require an external power connector worked fine, then it's most likely the PSU isn't outputing enough juice on that 6 pin. Do you have a molex 4pin to 6 pin converter around? If so, try that on a different PSU cable and see if that helps... (unless you have a spare PSU around or a digital multimeter to test it).
I tried that and still the same , now i receive 4 short beeps , it sounds like first 2 beeps in pair then the last 2 beeps in pair , something like beep-beep , beep-beep . Do you recommend i should go with the PC and one of the video cards that does not work somewhere to test my components?
