Default I think my VGA is dead.

Ok so I rewired my whole computer becuse I planned on sleeving it but I didnt have the time at the moment, or the right tools.


So I Hooked evreything up and I booted up.

evreything fires up...but I have a problem now.


On the 4 leds, it all 4 are red, then 3, then it flickers back to 4, then 3, then back to 4. and then I get a long beep with 2 short ones.


So I read the beep codes guide on DFI, and it says

1 long, 2 short Video adapter error so look there for bad video card or seating etc.

Im thinking I may have damaged my card while I was installing my vf700.....


What could I have done? and if I send it back to newegg will I get a new one.

You are gonna need to be more specific.

What LEDs are you talking about?

What kind of motherboard and video card do you have?

Are these new parts? Or, are they older and you have just pulled everything apart and rebuilt?

BTW, you spelt friend wrong in your sig

Im talking about the LED's on the bottom left on my dfi lanparty Ultra-d Motherboard.


This was a pc I built all with new parts, I merely just took the PSU out, and put it back in .


I also I took my VGA out and put it back in after I installed the vf700 cooler.



**** I alwasy spell friend wrong.....always alwayss.....

Your motherboard has two PCI-E 16x slots. Make sure you have put your vid card in the right one. I actually made the same mistake when I was first building my current computer
