Default Computer startup problem

Hi guys,
I turned on my PC this morning and the computer made all the normal noises, CD drive works, etc etc, but the monitor just says 'No signal' and the orange light shows. Think its a graphics card problem, but im not sure. I tried removing 1 stick of ram and reseating it in different ports but it didnt work, and tried reseating the graphics card. Also tried using another monitor but the same problem occured.

Its an AGP ATI radeon 9800 pro atlantis card on an ASUS abit motherboard.

Thanks for any help.

ASUS and ABit are two different companies... you can't have an "ASUS ABit motherboard".

Try another graphics card and maybe try another power supply.


Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870
