Windows 7: Black screen after long post bootup

Yeah you got it. The last time I updated the BIOS was probably just over a year ago. Haven't checked for any more updates. I've reset the BIOS while troubleshooting and it didn't affect anything.

During this time, I've left my computer at an NCIX shop for the techs to look at. Yesterday he said the gpu works on his test bench and my PSU isn't working properly. I bought a new PSU to find that it didn't fix anything. He called earlier today after his diagnosis testing thingy and he said he got an error on the mobo for a faulty pcie slot. Doesn't make sense to me because the 7950 I'm trying to replace worked perfectly fine before this situation.

I always try to remember that their might be more than one problem.

Let us know that the computer shop figures out.

Did you try my suggestions?
One can damage a pci-e slot by installing a video card improperly.

I went to visit the shop with my 7950 and it worked perfectly. The tech concluded it was a compatibility issue due to BIOS or something. He basically said the gpu is too new for my i5 2500k rig. Not sure about you guys, but that sounds crazy to me.

I ended up buying new parts for a new computer. Hoping it's a hassle free solution.
