BOOM and card gone????? but how??

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
i think my graphics card is gone but i don't know how?!! i have a Galaxy 7600GT and jus the other day i was playing Tomb Raider Anniversary...everything was fine no problems. Then i switched off my comp to go to bed..i mean everthing was off... UPS etc the only thing I didn't do was pull the plug from the socket....which i don't do anyway.... then early mornin the transformer near my house blew or something coz i heard a noise... and the power went.......when it came back on & i switched on my PC there was NO display what so ever!! Can any one tell me what happened exactly... i mean i switched off everyhing...could the blowing up of the transformer have fried my card without the PC even being on???? This is not the first time either....lost another card the same way

It's very possible that your card got fried because some circuit breaker flipped

Hmm.. So you can completely boot up the computer with onboard?

Worst case scenario, get a 7800GTX for 99 dollars

Awhile back, I tripped a breaker trying a massive OC, no joke.
Anyway, I let my mobo sit without the battery overnight and it fired right up the next day.
