The fan on it still spins but I am sure that is not a way of determining if it is functioning properly. So I tried putting my gtx 470 back into my old rig and the same thing happens. It won't display any image when I try and boot. It doesn't seem to boot to windows in the background either because I can normally hear the raptor spinning as it's booting windows but I don't hear it now. so it seems to be stuck at some bios promt or menu?
So I think I some how killed my gtx 470 during the transplant which I have no idea how... I just wanted to make sure you guys had the same conclusion as me finding the video card at fault here. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
Do you get beeps when you turn on the system, do you hear windows booting by any chance?
I see you are not getting pass the post. Can you get into the BIOS at all?
Try connecting only the bare minimum components, if you can't even access the BIOS, it could be the board. Sometimes just a USB device connected can cause your PC to not go past the posting stage.Edited by saulin - 4/12/11 at 2:47pm
