Default Need quick response guys..

Trying to fix my new computer here .. but surprise surprise it's not working!!

Or more accurately, the monitor doesn't display anything. I switch the power on and the monitor light for a second flashes green but then goes to orange, which generally means stand by. When I remove the monitor to graphics card cable, the monitor says no signal .. which means it is detecting the graphics card... Also, the fans on the graphics card spin at full speed ....

Please help \;/

Default Re: Need quick response guys..

maybe theres something wrong with the GPU.
i think that even if the card is fried, the fan still spins.
Either get this, and see what the post beeps tells you, unless you already got one that has post beeps.

i dont know where to get one though... i got mine from my case.
Or try to get your hands on a graphics card, maybe from a friend or something.

EDIT - you can get it from here, but i never shopped at that site before, so i dont know if its safe or not.
