Video Card Bricked?
Hello, I've recently constructed a new computer that I've saved up for a few months to build. It's specs are:
Disk Drive: Lite-On 20x LH-20A1L
Motherboard: MSI K9N SLI Platinum AM2
RAM: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB)
Power Supply: Antec True Power Trio TP3-550 ATX12V 550W
Video Card: MSI NX8600GTS GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+
Now, my problem is that I have everything nicely hooked up and everything, but when I turn the computer on, all the fans, lights, and the works come on - however, there are no beeps, and there is no video. It runs, but nothing happens. Screen stays black and that's it.
I have the power hooked into the card and everything is in its proper place - etc. The only problem is I just have no video. >.<
By the way, I have hooked up this computer on bare essentials outside of the case to test for a short - I still have the same problem. No video at all or any indication it is working whatsoever.
