When I boot the comp, there is no display. I get a beep code (2 short, 1 long), which i looked up and confirmed that it is a video issue. However theres several things that got me confused:
-The monitor seems to "detect" if the dvi cable is plugged in as it goes from "no signal" to "power saving mode" when I switch on the power -The gpu's fan still works when i boot -The card looks perfectly fine (same as the picture in the link above)
Oh, When I take the card out of the tower and boot, then i don't get any beeps at all. The only thing I can do now is run off the onboard controller (which is extremely laggy and slow D:). Yes I know its a crappy card, but I'm a student in debt that can't afford much atm.
