Hello everyone,

 

Been having a video card issue with a GTX 750.  Sometimes the card boots up, other times the card does not.  I'll get the black screen with the Digital/Analog box, followed by the Check Signal Cables box sometimes, othertimes it just gives me a black screen with no windows floating around.

 

I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting cables, blowing the dust out and reattaching the card to no avail most the time (like I said, sometimes it does work)

 

I reverted back to an old 9500GT card I had laying around and it works just fine so I'm wondering if it's the video card (which would make sense) but I'm just curious if anyone else has had similar issues and knows something.

 

The PC is quite old, which may be another factor.

 

Windows 7 64x

AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 6000+

8192MB RAM

600W PSU 

ASUS m3n78-em MOBO

Hi Savvy, 

Please let us know what you are having struggles with.  Be as detailed as you can, and tell us what kind of machine you have.

Also, with the GTX 750, the cable from the video card to the monitor, one end had a DVI attachment while the other end did not, using the 9500GT both ends are VGA. I'll have to try using new DVI ports/cable and see if that fixes the problem.

It is possible the monitor could be having an issue.  That's where if you have another cable it would be the best way to tell.  If it isn't the cable I would start an RMA ticket for 750.

Before you RMA it, I'd update your motherboards BIOS. Some of the newer GPUs have small compatibility issues with older boards causing them to act weird and do things like that.

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
