  1. Hiya,

    trying to resolve an issue with my homebuilt computer crashing while playing games. I had an HIS Radeon 5770 installed. I removed it and put in a Radeon 6670. When I powered the computer up, I got "no signal" on my display. I removed the new card and put in the old card again. "no signal"

    I tried both in another PCIe slot. "no signal"

    For the record, I have a Rampage III Formula mobo. There's no onboard video, so I can't try the computer without a video card.

    Help?

    Have you tried clearing the mobo's CMOS (including battery removal) ?
    Did you test the HD 5770 in another machine to see if it was indeed failing ?

    Bah. I figured it out. It was the RAM. I must have nudged one of 'em while installing and it got loose. Crisis averted.

    Glad you got it sorted.
