I just moved today and when I arrived and setup my comp the monitor just goes into sleep mode and I get nothing on screen. The monitor power button just blinks like it is in sleep mode.
I am using an ASUS 5850 TopCU GPU with an ASUS P6T SE motherboard, 6gig of RAM and a corsair 750 80+ power source. Oh and an I7 920 D0 Stepping CPU. It was working fine less than 12 hours before.
I tried the monitor on another comp and it worked fine. When I unplug the monitor cable it says a cable connection problem. I tried resetting the CMOS on the motherboard and have rotated my RAM to different slots. Also removed the GPU and used the other slot to no avail.
I am thinking the GPU bit the dust but any help would be greatly appreciated.
If the GPU is faulty what would be the best AMD GPU to replace the card? Would it be worth going up to an 7950 or would that bottleneck my system?
Ok I fixed it. I have been up for 17 hours and put in a full day of work than drove 5hrs to a new province. My mind is foggy and I thought I already did this. I took out the power cord and hit the power button 5-6 times. It started fine after this.
