Ok, so earlier today, I worked on my computer, everything's fine and dandy, etc.


Then I turn it on about 4 hrs later, and nothing comes up on the screen.


I had a backup gpu, a small Radeon 5450 which I plugged in, and again - nothing happened. I switched the cables around, jiggled stuff (maybe not the brightest idea) and did everything else I could think of, including powering it on using the default, cpu driven gpu. Or whatever that's called. Everything worked just fine, till it finished the "DELL" bios screen, when it told me that I should restart my computer and use the gpu, since it was still plugged in. I tried this with both gpus, and they were both recognized as graphics adapters. Then I booted the computer up just fine when I pulled the gpu out, only using the internal gpu.


After all this, I'm pretty convinced that its the graphics card slot that isn't working, but it was still recognized? Please help. I'd like to get working on my development projects.
