Black Screen (i5 2500k, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm have a pretty big problem. When I turn on my monitor, nothing happens. Computer had just blue screened a few minutes before, so I updated my mobo drivers. Instead of restarting, I just put it in to sleep mode and went to eat dinner. I came back, and now the monitor won't display anything.

Some further info: i5 2500k CPU OC'd to 4.3 GHz(never changed vcore, could be why I blue screened), CoolerMaster 212+ cooler (temps never went over 40C under load, i.e gaming). I really wish I could remember what the Blue Screen error was, but since nothing happens when I turn on the computer, I can't tell you. I'll try replacing a couple components to see if I can get it working, but for now, I don't know what the source of the problem is.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

P.S.
Other components: 2x2gb XMS3 DHX Corsair RAM, Asus GTX 460 768mb

Reset the cmos. You can try 1 stick of ram at a time as well. Check motherboard for burn marks or blown capacitor. Define mobo drivers? ethernet,sound or did you flash the board?

Do you have a case speaker? Any beeps? Try unhooking anything that isnt needed and only use one stick of RAM.

Well, I tried using only 1 stick of RAM at a time, as well as unplugging the hard drive. Neither of these things did anything.

Edit: Also, the CPU fan is not working, just thought I'd throw that out there. Case fans work fine.
