Video Help

  1. Im helping my friend with his computer that recently had a video card die. So i went and replaced the video card and when i turn the computer on, i get a beep code with one long and three short beeps. And I was wondering if this could mean that the new video card is bad. The computer is a custom build and the mobo is a 680i. Please any opinions will help!

    Well , we need more info about the mobo, and type of video card...

    mobo brand?
    Cpu socket type?
    video card name?

    Mobo is a 680i as mentioned.
    680i is LGA775.
    680i if PCIe.

    I would try re-seating the ram and if that doesn't work, clear the CMOS.
