I have a problem with my computer. It restarts shortly after it has been turned on. Upon restart, the video card fan spins up to maximum speed and the system stays there with a blank screen. I went out a bought a new video card, same thing. Also I noticed this new video card gets REALLY hot.
Since both cards did the same thing, I am left to blieve that my problem is either with the MoBo or the power supply.
What would be the most logical next step to fix my system?
The system has been running solid until now.
I reset the BIOS, Pulled the motherboard out of the case, started it with minimum devices attached. Removed one module of ram.
Has anyone ever seen this happen to a motherboard?
