Re: New graphic card, no screen on bootup
Depends. I have seen some dead mobos that still allowed fans to spin but nothing else. However, before I would send things out to get a replacement I would try to figure out what is doing this.
Do the following if it is at all possible:
Start with putting your video card in a different comptuer and see if it gives video. If the second computer gets video out of this card, then we know that is good.
Get different RAM and put that in your system and see if you get any video.
If you get video with different RAM in your system we know your RAM is bad.
If both the video card, and RAM problems are-disproved, then we can look at your motherboard as the cause of the problem.
