Never thought of that, is there any way to test and see if there is something wrong with it

Not really sure how you'd do that in this scenario, especially since your computer is booting up and is fine until the graphics card comes into question.

All I can think of is this: when the game is started and the graphics card is pulling power, there might not be enough, causing your problem.

Any friends around (or do you have another computer) where you could swap out graphics cards and see what's up?

Double check all your drivers for the hell of it.

There's your problem. It got sad that you were yelling at it and decided to die.


On a serious note it sounds a lot like a dead mobo. I've seen quite a few of those. They generally do the same thing. It will power up the PSU, lights and fans on, but no post, no beeping. Sorry I couldn't offer an explanation in your favor...
