Wasn't quite sure on where to post this, but since it is an issue on visuals and I have a fairly old card, I assumed my issue could be GPU related. If not, please move this thread to the appropriate location.
Anyway, I will cut short:
I had a problem with my computer a few months ago. As in, nothing was appearing on the screen while it started, nothing at all. Everything else seemed okay, fans were working fine, lighting was in place, just no image on the screen.
I was able to get it working when I used a VGA cable instead of DVI, but I had to use my motherboard GPU as my GTX 460 doesn't support VGA. In any case, the guys in the shop said it was a motherboard issue, I switched it to a new one, and had no problems for months.
And since last week, it started again. It's been doing it for days. The weird thing is, the image disappears from the screen during games and other stuff too now, in addition to the start up process.
The even weirder thing is, when the screen goes black, my speakers start doing dubstep. No, literally dubstep. A bunch of very loud, and not so loud noises of electrical nature bunched up together. It goes off when I shut the speakers down, and starts back up again when I turn them on during the visual-disappearance thing. Fans are working with no issue at all.
