1. Does this card need any 6-pin or 8-pin power leads? Make sure they're connected.

2. Try the card in another machine.


The problem is always due to the graphic card failure.

1. If you have an external graphic card and you get this problem. Then probably your graphic cards busted.

2. If you have an integrated graphic card and you get this problem. Well, Sorry but its about time you replace your motherboard.

Integrated graphics are not fixable.

3. If its the external problem. Then switch to the integrated graphic card (Thats if you have one) or get a new graphics card.

Have you tried clearing the CMOS on the motherboard? You'll need to check the motherboard manual for the jumper location (although it may be labelled well enough to find it just by looking). Generally, you'd set the "Clear CMOS" jumper to its ON position, turn the system on, turn the system off, and return the jumper to its original (OFF) position.

You may have confused your motherboard switching graphics cards, so install the new graphics card, clear the CMOS, and see if that helps.

All video cards have a basic display mode that does not require any drivers.

I would look in the PCIe slot and make sure I didn't get a huge dust bunny in there shorting between the pins.

Just a thouhgt.

I posted this link on the first page to inform OP about the dangers of ESD.

Take a look.

A soft paint brush works here best.

Bush gently, this area is very delicate!

The technician seems to think its the motherboard and that it is dead... He also recommended that I buy a new PSU as well just to be safe... Are these 2 parts half decent:

ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard
ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard [970-EXTREME3] - $99.00 : PC Case Gear

Corsair AX650 Gold Power Supply
Corsair AX650 Gold Power Supply [CMPSU-650AX] - $185.00 : PC Case Gear

Is it worth getting a higher Wattage power supply for roughly same price but lower brand ie.
Corsair HX-750 Power Supply [CMPSU-750HX] - $189.00 : PC Case Gear

PS. I am kinda low on moneys, so that reflects it.
