  1. Hello, first off let me say this is a wonderful site and in sadder we couldent have met under better terms :(.

    So this is the problem.

    1 year old custom built pc. Amd 250 3ghz dual core,
    gigabyte Ga-ma78gm-us2. Mobo
    original videocard: 7600 gs nvidia
    new card 8800gts nvidia.

    After installing the new card it made a high frequenzy beeping sound. So I immediatly shut it down and switched the videocards back... Only to hear a lowe freq. Buzzing sound...

    So I took that card out as well, and turned it on, again it made a beeping sound.

    I can hear all the peices starting up but there's no display. Can anyone tell me what parts I killed :(.

    ZackT, did you plug in the 6 pin PCI-E power connector on the 8800GTS?
