Asus M5A 99x Evo
Mushkin Silverline 8x2 16gb RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650
Rosewill 750W PSU


So, yesterday, my computer was working perfectly fine, absolutely no signs of issue or anything, and then today when I booted it, no display came up, so I tried what I usually do, I powercycled it, and that didn't work.
The POST code before I reset the CMOS was just a single beep, but then I reset the CMOS and my computer, when I boot it, the fans go at extremely high speeds, the LEDs on the motherboard flash red and green, and the POST code turns into

long, short short short, pause, short.

I don't know what this means and any help would be appreciated, thank you.

EDIT: I've taken out the RAM, cleaned it and re-seated it with no avail.

Here is a guide to post beep codes that should help you diagnose your issue, but you need to know who the maker of your bios is.http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
Hope that helps.

Hello, and Welcome

 

It's a Graphics Card fault. The last beep is the final post beep.

 

Try reseating the Graphics Card.

  • Clean the Golden Finger of graphics card

     

     

  • Clean the graphics card slots

     

     

  • Try to test the onboard graphics card if there is onboard VGA integrated

     

     

  • If convenience, (sic) please change different graphic cards to test again

I just tried reseating it and all, and it appeared to have worked, except, I still have no display. There's no post code and the fans aren't going crazy so I don't know what's going on now.

EDIT: I'm fairly certain it isn't the monitor because I tried it on my default monitor, and tried it on a spare and I get the same result either way.

I don't know if it will help but try the following. Unplug the power supply. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Connect the power supply and boot.

I tried that, that's power cycling. :/ It doesn't seem to work.

Do you have another card you can swap?

If possible I would try the card in another computer. Maybe a computer repair shop could confirm if the card works. The only other options I can think of is to buy the cheapest video card you can find and see if that works, if not, then I would suspect the motherboard or maybe the PSU also. Is the card still in the warranty period? Is there anything in the motherboard manual about the LED flashing RED and Green?

I don't think it's the motherboard because it produces a post beep, the single beep, but no code, and the lights have always been there and they stopped flashing once I reseated the graphics card, but I could be wrong.

Then if the card is in the warranty period I would RMA it. Other than that, I would let a shop determine if the card is good or bad.

 

Sorry I couldn't be of any additional help on the problem.

It's alright. I think I'm gonna have to get the cheapest card possible to see if it's actually an issue with the card or if it's something else.

Did you double check all your cabling? Try switching power cables, display cables? Try a different monitor? I think a new graphics card is a bit premature until you have eliminated all other possibilities.
