My computer recently displayed the "attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed" and now is not displaying anything at all. This occurred while I was running two 4870's in crossfire configuration. I have tried going to one video card, and swapping them to no avail. My monitor is not displaying the test colors, it is as if my computer is in sleep mode from a graphics perspective. I have tried connecting to both DVI ports as well with still no luck.
If I boot the computer now I can hear the standard windows start up sounds/music, and even if I disconnect and reconnect my monitor DVI cable, I can hear the "bum-bum" sound when something is newly connected to the computer.
This is where I am stuck. Unfortunately there is no on board graphics on my mobo.
