Hey everyone, I have a computer here that was custom built and used for a few years and then the graphics just quit. I can't get video output. The power supply has always been loud and a little bit grinding but now I get nothing. I have a custom built machine with a core 2 duo and an asus p5sln mobo with a 7500gt graphics card. I have tried switching slots of the graphics card. Thanks for the help!

No such board, per Google.

There is a p5nsli...is that what you mean?

The general technique for troubleshooting easy hardware items...temporary substitution of a known good component.

OTOH, if your PSU went out...or was failing...it may have either damaged/ruined the video card and/or other components, IMO.

Things to do:

1. Check your 7500GT on another PC
2. Check if your PSU works well
3. Try booting up your PC with only onboard graphics

But if you were indeed referring to the Asus P5NSLI, it has no onboard graphics and you will have to resort to another video card for powering your display.
