Abit AV8 Problem

  1. I've had my set up for a few years now and I've never run into any problems.

    Abit AV8
    AMD 3000 CPU
    nVidia 6800

    Recently the comp has been having issues when starting up.

    -When I'd do a restart it would shut down and then just flash a blank screen instead of rebooting (I had to pull the power and restart manually).

    -Next it'd have problems with a cold boot, the power would come on and everything would come to life but the mobo would hang on POST code 25 and I'd get a blank screen. (I'd turn the power on and off a few times and it'd start back up no problem)

    -Now it just hangs on the POST code and I get a blank screen.

    POST code 25 says
    "Early PCI Initialization
    -Enumerate PCI bus number.
    -Assign memory & I/O resource
    -Search for valid VGA device & VGA BIOS, and put it into C000:0"

    I've tried flashing the CMOS with no luck

    I'm afraid this might mean my vid chard is dieing/dead, any other adivce or suggestions. Unfortunately I don't have a 2nd card to swap out and test.

    The first thing to do, would be to try another video card, and go from there
