Also, he went on to say that after removing his drivers, he can not get signal with the onboard or GTX cards. That is why I suggest resetting the BIOS, or using the Battery trick. That's also why I suggested trying to boot off his Windows DVD, because if both video options(onboard and discrete) are no longer working, then it's worth trying, especially if he can still access the BIOS, but just not get into windows.

I understand that, he also said that after all that he couldn't troubleshoot cuz he had no access to the bios and was getting an error code, that's why I suggest the issue ins't windows related smile.gif

Maybe just needs to reset the while bios.

Yeah, that was my first suggestion as well, but from other people's reports of this A2 problem, most of them were related to VGA not making full contact with the PCIe slot and even faulty monitor cables.

I once saw a client who had got a write stuck between the card and the slot. Hopefully its just the bios,our the battery trick, because that'll be easy for the OP.

thanks all! I re-seated the video card and all is fine, A2 does mean something is wrong with the video card connection but i also hear it has something to do with IDE? I think one of the screws i used to secure the card may have caused the card to slide out slightly from the board thumb.gif
