So i recently had this problem where i concluded my gpu had become faulty, but i was still curious just asking the people on the forums here since you seem to know a good bit about hardware. So basically my scenario was that my Gpu wouldn't output a signal to either of my monitors: I would turn the computer on, having one computer screen hooked to DVI and the other to HDMI. It would display a picture, but only briefly. After the windows login screen (about 5 seconds) the screen would go black and output a signal ''No signal'' (both the monitors). I read up on the issue and had read people were having success unplugging the computer of all power, then doing a power loop while having removed the small battery on the motherboard. No success there, it would still have the same issue. I tried switching the video cables into my motherboard for intel HD graphics, and it wouldnt work. I then found out, aslong as the video card was hooked in the motherboard, it wouldnt work whatsoever. I tried both slots on the motherboard with no success, when i removed the graphics card i had a fully working PC. I then re-installed windows 7 and downloaded all the apropriate up to date drivers and tried, no success. The weird thing is, the graphics card did light up and it did receive enough power; that i made sure of. After testing basically everything i possibly could (From reading success stories with a similar issue) i concluded my video card was fried. Ive now made a request for a new one, since it did come with a 5 year warranty, id like some experts opinions on this matter though. Thanks!
