GPU: Inno3D 8800gt 512mb
MOBO: ECS A690G-M2
I just had this problem last night after Windows Update finished downloading and the system requires it to restart, then I did restart the system, after about 20 seconds i noticed that my monitor is not receiving signal from PCIEx GPU and also notice the system even fails to load the bios, because as i observed the hdd led shows no disk activities or did not beep at all. I have this problem before but after a few restarts it backs to normal. But now that magic doesn't work anymore. Here's my troubleshooting steps.
1st thing I did is, reseating/unplugging all the cables/wires on the MOBO and I even cleared the CMOS but has no luck.
2nd thing I did is, I removed the PCIEx GPU (Inno3d 8800GT) from the board and switching to Onboard GPU, and it just works fine! o_O
3rd thing I did is, put the PCIEx GPU card back again, and same problems occur.
The big QUESTION is: What could be the main problem?
I have no chance of testing my PCIEx GPU to my other PC since they only support AGP.
Anyone have solution to this? Please!
