do this by either switching the jumpers next to the battery or taking the battery out while system is unplugged

I suggest the cmos also, but i don't think it's your card. It could be your monitor. Is it in good shape??? The same thing happened to me about 6 months ago. Turns out the monitor just went bad. If it is you card, i'm sure the 6800 GT is new enough to get a replacement.

take out your card and look around for any burn marks, just in case it did short out somewhere. Usually if there is something wrong with your card, the computer will beep some code and not boot up.
