I logged onto my computer this morning around 4:30pm. It was working fine and i was casually on Skype talking to my friends but around an hour later my monitor switched off and displayed ''no signal'' i disconnected all the cables such as the DVI and HDMI and realized that the plug wasn't fully connected to the socket but still after properly connected it still wouldn't display. I opened the case up and had a look, everything seemed fine and working exactly how it looked when it was working but still didn't work. I tried disconnecting the PCI-E's and connecting them again, tightening the screws holding the GPU, Installed all motherboard drivers and turned off the PC by the socket. I currently run the computer through my integrated graphics on my CPU and using HDMI through the motherboard. Also the fans run on the GPU as normal.

 

P.S - The PC was working for about a week before this happening.

Pull it out and re-seat it. If the integrated card is working then your monitor is okay. Use different cables to make sure it is not that. Find someone with a computer that you could throw your card into to check it there. Isolate the issue. Try an older PCI-E card if you have one to make sure the slot is good on the mother board.

My friend says it may be a DOA (Defected on arrival) GPU but i appreciate your reply.
