Hey all! This is my first post and I truly hope you can help!
Just yesterday while running a PC game, the computer image seemed to lock requiring a forced shutdown. When a standard reboot was attempted as normal, no connection could be found between the monitor and PC, causing the monitor to go into "amber" stand-by mode. I've done various searches of other posts and the like and no other situation seems quite the same.
Here are some details.
-Purchased a new video card (Radeon x1300) about 3 weeks ago. It has been running fine since.
-Installed 1 GB of memory 2 days ago (Saturday) or one day before the issue.
-No monitor when plugged into the PC seems to work. It also appears as though it is not a cable issue as I've tried other cables.
-I have already opened it up and checked for connections. All seems fine. I even lifted the graphics card and reseated it. Still nothing
The entire situation, as I'm sure you can tell, is frustrating as I can't even get a display. The drivers are new, but even if I wanted to check that stuff, I couldn't!
Anything anyone could do would be much appreciated. The thing that has stumped me is the "all-of-the-sudden" nature of the issue.
Thanks in advance!
