Possible mobo death...?
BIOSTAR TA785 A2+ AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G
Unlocked tricore CPU
After some recent power outages her graphics settings dropped the second monitor, set resolution pretty low. This morning I tried to reset the graphics only to be told that there was no Nvidia GPU present. I pulled up Device Manager and saw that it had been disabled, Code 43. I had it to update the driver and then rebooted.
The comp came up fine with both screens. I went to double-check the resolution but when I right-clicked the desktop the colors went blocky and then it went black. The computer was still running but no desktop.
Shut it down via the power button, rebooted. No desktop, nothing on the monitors.
Opened it up, cleaned and reseated the GFX card. Still nothing onscreen.
Cleared CMOS, tried onboard, nothing.
Cleared CMOS, tried a PCI video card, nothing.
My thought is that the mobo fried itself. Other opinions?
