  1. ok so this is what happened! the other night i was on my computer and everything was fine then all of a sudden the screen froze up which
    was no cause for alarm at the time so i did a hard reboot! thats when i said oh boy!!!
    computer froze again on the gigabyte boot screen thats when i did another hard reboot!
    then nothing now i get a no signal flash up on my screen and nothing but my computer still kicks on fans run sounds like the dvd drives kick
    on ok the lights blink for a bit then they turn off and my hard disks spin up!
    now that brings me to tonite i took the whole thing apart and just installed my vid card since mb does not have on board vid and
    one stick of ram and still nothing so i did the same thing with three more sticks of ram and other vid card!
    so now my ques. is .
