You have a bunch of different threads with a similar issue with your video card not working or being detected. From what I have gathered so far, this issue is hardware related. I feel it is worth including these threads here since the issue appears to be the same:
A few things we can be certain about: if the computer doesn't post (as in no bios screen) this is a hardware level issue. No amount of software/drivers will fix a no post issue. A computer with working hardware will always be able to display a bios splash screen or post screen, no windows or OS software is required for this to happen, the bios does the work.
What piece of hardware is causing the issue or is bad is the real question.
I may have missed certain parts of your posts (I quickly glanced at them) however if you have spare parts it is time to start trying with those. I would try with a different video card, a different power supply etc...
Again, a no post (no splash screen or bios) indicates a hardware level issue.
If removing your video card from the computer has resolved the issue every single time, that is a decent sign your video card has a problem. I would replace that as a first test. It is also possible for a PSU to cause an issue or the motherboard, or even the cpu, all of these components can cause issues. If you have a different pci-e slot, you could test the card in that slot.
I am going to read through some of your other threads a bit more closely.
It also sounds like your hard drive is connecting/disconnecting. For now I would like you to connect all of your hard drives to the computer and then run speccy (you may have to use your intel graphics if you have issues with your video card).
- Go to Piriform's website, and click the big button.
- Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version.
- You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
- After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
- Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
- Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot
- You will see the following prompt:
- Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
- Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
- Congrats! You have just posted your specs!
