7300GT Problem? Or Motherboard?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ok, I think this is an issue with my Graphics card. Let me know what ya'll think. Maybe its my mobo? It was working fine yesterday now its not working properly.

I boot up my computer, and the boot screen picture (Asus AI logo) will flash up on the briefly, but not as long as its supposed to. It continues to boot, flashes the Mandriva Linux bootloader screen, but again not as long as its supposed to then goes back to black for the rest of the boot.

Now the other thing that has me somewhat confused is this. One of my PCI slots on my motherboard doesn't work, and one of the front usb ports doesnt work either. They both worked fine a few weeks ago, but now they don't.

What would you guys recommend I do? Warranty the mobo, graphics card, or both? This was from newegg so I shouldn't have issues right? I've never had to go through the process of RMAing or Warrantying anything until now.

I'm going to cross post this (nvidia and AMD motherboard sections), so I can get an effective blend of answers.

Since when did OCN post such short posts?

But really, it's your motherboard
First of all, you should contact your retailer by phone (or whatever the retailers preferred choice is, if they don't have any, phone them!) and say you have a problem, describe it throughoutly, and ask for RMA in the end of the report.

They should then tell you what to do.

Well, I got my motherboard back from being RMA'ed, and its still doing the same thing.

Im thinking its more of a video card issue...Anyone want to lend out a cheap PCI-E graphics card for me to use to test to make sure? No one around here has a PCI-E card.

Wow, I'm thoroughly disappointed with my RMA. The CMOS battery eject tab was broken off. I cant get the battery out. RMA number 2. :sigh:
