graphics card not working after computer crash
alright so, i was playing crysis on my ati radeon 5850. I went to tab out of the game to check something, and the screen glitched and froze up my computer. i let it sit for a good 4 minutes and nothing happened, so i forced a shutdown and when i turned the computer back up, there is no display. i restarted it a few times, unplugged the psu gpu and hard drive from the motherboard and plugged back in, but still nothing. ive ruled out the possibility of it being a hard drive or cpu problem, because im able to get display through my integrated vga slot.
also ill add, this card was most likely just too much for my computer. besides for the gpu, everything else in the computer is 2 years old, and at the time i bought the computer, was already getting outdated. So im just wondering, did i fry this new $210 graphics card? (ive played many high graphic games for a few months now and havnt had any problems)
