HELP! No Video :(

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
As the title says my computer decided it would lock up on me last night, when I went to hardboot it, it all fired up but no video.

I should explain more clearly what I was doing, I was running the AMD Overdrive Auto-Tune function when the computer locked up completely. So I hardbooted it (maybe not the smartest thing I could do).

Anyways I went to turn it back on, all the bells/whistles/fans/etc. came to life but now it doesn't show any video in any of the ports.

So I removed my 2 Radeon 5770 Flex cards (one at a time trying each time) to no avail. I then removed them both completely cleared the CMOS and tried the onboard GPU.... still no video.

I know the monitor works fine because it is my Plasma TV using an HDMI cable.

I even tried power cycling the unit with no fix.

Anyone else have any suggestions or solutions as to how to correct this or how to find out what may be the problem?

Thanks

I say motherboard is toast. Try reseating the RAM though. If you can test the CPU in another motherboard do that as well, just to be sure it's the motherboard.

No speakers hooked up = no codes

Since I was going away for a week I took it to the shop I bought the parts for my buddy to diagnose it, you were both right, 1 of the OCZ ram sticks bit the bullet and the mobo was fried, we are all still unsure how the mobo fried but either way all is being replaced under warranty and I will be switching to Mushkin RAM in the near future.

Thanks for your help anyways guys

Yep, live n learn, local shop is replacing the mobo free of charge, and the RAM they are just charging me the difference from the OCZ Gold 1333 to the Kingston HyperX 1600.
