So interesting story. I own an Asus desktop model cg5275 with a radeon hd 5870 graphics card, an i5 intel processor, that runs on windows 7 home 64 bit.
So I started my computer up this morning and my monitor is blank. Computer seems to be running but there's no response from my screen (Asus 1080p if that helps) at all. So I hook up my ps3 to the moniter to see if its my screen and sure enough theres my ps3 home screen. I mess with the different ports that my card has swapping between my dvi slots before trying the hdmi. But it's no until i plug my monitor into my intel (r) graphics media accelerator hd (an integrated motherboard graphics card) that my screen finally gets a signal from my pc and I can at least snoop around. I get some a warning messege about how my drivers
for my ati card are out of date and i need to either update them or go into my display options and enable my card, which seemed odd to me. So I update my drivers and tthe warning no longer pops up but my card still wont talk to my monitor. Or maybe my computer won't talk to it. But the thing that's really getting me is my radeon doesn't even appear in my device manager anymore.
Does this sound familiar or ring a bell with anyone? I'm not the most technical of computer guys and i've pretty much reached my skill limit.
