A Question about my computer

  1. I had a motherboard die on me that I replaced. I purchased an open box motherboard from newegg.com. Everything seemed fine then one morning the computer starts up but no video I asked for opinions and the most people said the video died. Okay I purchase a new one-computer shows video now. Then two days later when I boot my computer it does the same thing and boots into windows but no video. Weird thing is I left the computer on while I went downstairs for about ten minutes I come back and restart then the picture shows up. I’ve tested this a few times and it’s consistent when I use the computer for a while shut down the video won’t come on unless I leave the computer on for a while then restart. I have no idea what’s wrong now since I hooked my monitor up to my laptop and it comes on fine.

    Download and run Everest Free and look under Computer, Sensor for the voltages and post them.

    Well, the voltages look fine and you aren't getting any error messages just the need to basically boot twice to get video working. After that second boot, does it still shutdown or is it ok until next time you go to start the comp?

    I really don't have any answers for you. Basically, reseating the card and checking the cable and ensuring any additional power supply is connected well are all I can think of.
