Hey all,
The weirdest thing happened to my PC today...
I have a Sapphire 7850 2GB connected to a monitor (DVI) and a TV set (HDMI).
last night I got black screen on both, so i figured the graphic card's died on me (after 4 years!), and connected both monitor and TV to the onboard (Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H) graphic card.
This morning I woke up to the same problem! no signal coming out.
Now I'm worried about getting a new GPU, until I find out what's the cause of this malfunction...
THANK YOU in advance for any light you can shed on this..

additional info:
* OS: windows 10 
* CPU: Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 3470 
* no BIOS beeps on startup

Sounds like a driver issue at first glance... Windows 10 can wreak havok when it comes to drivers. Can you look in Device Manager to verify that a new graphics driver hasn't been installed in the past few days?

There should be a single beep, indicating a successful POST.


If you are getting no video before even getting to Windows, then it's not a driver issue. No beeps would indicate some kind of power or motherboard failure. Try to reset CMOS by taking out the battery and putting it back after a minute.
