I would rebuild in the case...very carefully. If it works outside the case, it should work inside the case if installed properly.
Just my 2c worth,
No Rich, your right, thats a good assessment.
The main reason I had said motherboard, is because he twice got it to work normally, then the same symptoms returned.
But yes, double check your ties to make sure, when you tightened then, the wires them self didn't pull loose from there contact points.
Alright, first off i had an old 8800gt graphics card laying around just to see if I can get the screen to work. Turns out, even with the other card in, my screen will not turn on. I feel there might be a problem with the PCI-E lane.
It's nice having working parts around to check things out!
But this is also a possible symptom of a board going bad.
Question: How long nave you used this board, and is it run 24/7, or only run, when your using it?Edited by Inteller - 8/21/11 at 10:10pm
