Boots fine, no video

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a custom built rig, and it was working fine. I put it in the car to go home, and I unpacked it, hooked it up, no video.

My computer:
ASUS P5L-VM Mobo
nVidia GTX 460
2GB RAM
Intel Core 2 Duo (Or similar, I don't remember exactly which model)

Computer boots up fine, but neither the motherboard nor the graphics card outputs video. It's not the monitor, because I hooked that up to my laptop and it works fine.

I have tried:
1. Reseating the graphics card
2. Reseating the RAM
3. Removing the Mobo battery for 30 minutes
4. Flashing the bios via jumpers
5. Plugging the monitor into the onboard video, and graphics card. No picture for either.

The computer boots and the hard drive spins as if reading boot data etc, but there's no image. Thoughts? What would the next step be?

Did you try booting with 1 stick of RAM? Does your motherboard have LED or error codes?

Did you try the memory sticks individually?

Edit: Ahh, Limes you beat me to it.

Try resetting your Bios by removing the battery instead of the jumpers.

I have not tried that. Could one stick of RAM prevent the graphics card and onboard video from functioning?

As for LED or error codes, nothing sounds unusual. There are no beep codes, the fan runs normally, and the HDD spins up and is read from.

I don't believe it. I took out one of the sticks of memory, and I get my first beep code. I swap them out, and it boots...So now my computer works fine and I'm down half my memory. Thank you guys for all your help!
