Hi guys, could really do with some help here.
Amd phenom X2 545 Ocz 400sxs psu Seagate barracuda 500gb hd Xfx hd 4850 1gb Asus M2N68 am se2
My system has recently failed and am fairly confident it's the graphics card but I am completely pc illiterate and would love some advice please.
I have been running skyrim for months now and although I can play the actual game with no problems the graphics card often crashes during the 3d loading graphics. I have to tab alt out then back in. A couple of days ago it crashed, and that's all she wrote, have been scouring sites for answers on my phone but really need some expert help. Here's a list of what I think you'll need to know but may not be everything of course.
When pc turns on I get the Asus screen then nothing at all
Get one bleep as per normal boot up.
Steady green light on mobo.
No bulging or leaking capacitors.
All fans running at normal speed.
Can feel heat coming from cpu.
When I press the power button, system shuts down instantly, no hold to turn off.
Have tried to gain access to pc from my mobile as I thought if it's the graphics card I could still access files etc, but no joy.
Here's hoping this is a simple problem and many thanks in advance for any help!
