  1. Hello everyone,

    Alright, I think I am having some problems with my video card, and I need some opinions or suggestions on what I possibly can do.

    Here is my problem:

    I got home from my trip out of town today and came to find out that my monitor blacked out, nothing would show up, I hooked up two other monitors and the same result had happened so I know it was not a monitor problem cuz they all worked on my other PC's. Alright, so then I thought to myself it may be a video card problem, I took it out and put in my older card that I had before I purchased the one I have in it now and the screen showed up, I was very disappointed in that result. I had just bought this card recently and I don't want to admit that the card is faulty.

    Other notes I want to add is that I noticed earlier that my monitor was turning pinkish and then back to normal sometimes. Also I checked if the card was secured in the slot and to no avail. So, is my card done for?

    Here are my specs:

    Motherboard: Biostar P4M80-M4 Socket 478
    Processor: Intel Celeron D 350 3.20Ghz
    RAM: 2GB Ultra DDR PC3200 400MHz (1 GB of each)
    Video Card: eVGA GeForce 7800 GS CO 256MB
    Diablo ATX Switching Power Supply 450W 115V/230V 10A/5A

    Anything else you need let me know and I will provide in more detail

    Thanks in advance

    "So, is my card done for?"

    That would be my guess :(

    I hope you bought it new, then you can RMA it.
