That's the dilemma. Once it goes black (screens says "No Video Input:), that's it. The hdd light is still functioning so I believe that Windows is still running. Also when it comes up the next time it says "Windows did not shutdown properly...".
Now after the screen goes black. I do a re-boot, the screen stays black the entire time. The only way I found to get the screen working again is to shutdown at the power supply and wait a couple of minutes before re-starting. That seems to work consistently, but I only have a minute or 2 before black.
Also, I am pretty certain that it's not a Windows issue, because I went into the bios and the screen went black on me in there as well.
I am running:
Asus P6 X58D (PCI Express 2.0)
Intel core I7 960
ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5 Graphics Cards R9280X-DC2T-3GD5 (PCI Express 3.0)
OCZ ram 12gb
(If need be, I can install the old video card. This should give us the ability to stay in the bios or Windows and do what needs to be done. At least I think it will? I haven't used this computer in a while, but I need it now.)
