A few weeks ago my monitor started to go black while computer was on. I would see it say No Video Signal I thought it was maybe going to sleep, so I went into the power management settings and toggled everything to not go to sleep or hibernate. Problem still persisted.
I then thought it was the onboard graphics, so I bought a graphics card, installed it and problem still persisted.
I then thought it was the monitor, so I swapped out the monitor to another computer, problem still persisted.
I then changed from VGA cable to DVI cable, problem was still there.
I then swapped out the original VGA with another that I had, problem still persisted.
Ive been into the BIOS and the settings seem to be appropriate to me. E.g., changed the onboard to PCIe and PCI. Whatever the case was.
Downloaded drivers for ATI Radeon HD 4550.
Ive used to be able to get into Safe Mode, but now it hangs at ATIPCIE.SYS file.
I have spent countless hours trying to troubleshoot this issue, done a lot of research on the internet and still am unable to resolve this issue. I am left to think that the onboard graphics is damaged on the motherboard? I dont know. Any suggestions?
