Alrighty, first time posting here guys... Last week I was playing a online FPS for majority of the day, and when i went to sleep and woke up the next day to turn my PC on... It turns on, but no video and it has error code 2 and 4 on the front of the PC, I looked up this code and it says "Possible graphics card failure". So I ordered a new graphics card off of amazon and put it in, still same problems.

This here is in -exact- detail to what the lights do. When I turn the pc on I get a battery light that lights up (thats what it looks like anyway) then 3 flash's and both of these lights are only for a short second, then it goes into solid 2 and 4 for the error codes. and my moniter turns off and on saying no video.(the moniter is fine i checked it on another pc)

I can make a short video or take pictures with my smartphone and post if this makes matters easier in replying to my problem.

Thanks a bunch guys Sincerely,

Welcome to BC Mayhaus. :)
Have you tried reseatting the GPU card connections and check if they are well fitted? You might wanna try also removing any other hardware components installed first, like the hard drive and optical drives to check on the difference. Remove also the CMOS battery for a couple of minnutes to make a hardware configuration reset. Alternately use one RAM module while doing this test.
