I just got a new motherboard in the mail, after installing everything, it turns on, terrific i think o myself, later on i notice a lagin performance, so I boot up the EVEREST prgram and notcie im only running on hlaf of the RAM i usually have (512MB/1GB) so later on, I pull out the video card (I have to to get to the RAM sticks) so I put it back in, didnt work, shut it down, pull out the video card again, didnt work, :thumbsup: The third time i make sure its in there really good, I put the video card back in and turn on the pc, the GPU's fan turns on and so does the little light, however there was no video signal, I tried a couple more time thinking it was a power issue, now im not so sure, I tried 6 different Molex cables into the video card, both DVI outputs, and really made sure it was into the AGP slot.
Is it possible that i damaged the motherborad or video card by taking it out?

P.S. sorry for the wall of text but I figured you would want a detailed explanation

Did you unplug the computer from the wall before reaching inside the case? If not, then it's possible that you've fried the card. Try another card to see if it works - that'll tell you if it's the card.

Just my opinion. it's a new board I'd RMA the thing. ECS is not the most reliable

Funny you should say that, I had a motherboard before this one and two transistors next to the processor socket melted, I was pretty steamed. Thanks

I agree with Mark ECS hasn't had the most luck with alot of people on here. I am using an MSI P4M8-M4 socket 478 board with great luck. I revived a E-machine. The board even includes over clocking software. I Am over clocked a mere 4% but the ram I have isnt the greatest. Just a suggestion if a different board is an option.
