No graphics display, not even a visible boot sequence
Posted on 2003-03-14
Recently after a reboot, my graphics died. When the monitor is left on and the computer rebooted, the only action on the screen is a brief flicker. No visible boot process, nothing. I can hear the OS loading as normal. Usually when there are Graphics card problems there is a sequence of beeps from the BIOS. Not this time.
I believed the Graphics Card was the problem. It was old so I replaced it. Yet the problem persists. The monitor works fine on other PCs. With the cover off the fan on the Graphics card is working, so power is getting through. I'm stuck for ideas.
The PC is dell. Reasonable spec 384Ram, 933Mhz P3 30Gb HDD. W2K. New 64Mb Nvidia Geforce2 w\TV Out (AGP)
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry I have no more points to offer, I'd give 500 if I had them.
