HIS 9800PRO won't boot.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My friend had this card for a couple years (bought it new from newegg) and it recently "blew out" on him. His comp just wouldn't start up and so he invested in a temporary new computer (E6600 w/ 7900GS + 2GB DDR800).

The problem is that the computer will noticeably boot up but nothing will be shown on the monitor (it will remain in standby). Not even a BIOS screen.

It is an AGP card and I tested it in my computer to see if maybe it could run in mine for some weird reason. It had the same problem and wouldn't boot up. I was wondering if there was anyway to find the problem and see if it is fixable because I would much rather have this 9800PRO than the 9600XT I currently have. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on this card to OC

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what MIGHT be the problem?

If it unfixable just flat out say it, this card didn't cost my anything and it won't hurt my feelings :-P

EDIT: I just tried the card again and I realized that the mobo doesn't beep and I don't hear my harddrive rev so I think there must be a hardware related issue on the card.

Hehe I hadn't cleaned out the CPU HSF ever and I just did for the first time, and my ambient temp is down from 40C to 31C. It was so gross.

Thanks!

I doubt you will be able to get it to work unless you know a lot about electronics.

Something, possibly one of the connections on the back of the card has broken, but not enough to warrant the 3 BIOS beeps.

If you are using the VGA output, try the DVI output if you can.

Yeah, I know pretty much zero about electronics. I don't even have the correct screwdriver to take the HSF off. I mean, if I saw a piece of wire disconnected, I'd probably be able to find where it came from and soder it back on, but from what I can see of the card nothing looks bad.

I have tried both VGA and DVI outputs, and I've used two different LCD monitors (15" and 17") with two different adapters for the DVI-to-VGA. I'm pretty sure its a hardware problem with the card, but I know a lot of people around here have experience with electronics and hopefully one of them could help. Thanks for your input though immortal giant.
