Hey, thanks in advance for helping me out!!!

About a month ago there was a really bad storm and some lightning hit close buy and all my power went out. When it came back on my monitor was not showing video. It just had a yellow light where the power light is like it wasnt geting a signal. So, to test I switch to a crappy video card and everything popped right on like normal.

So, I thought what the [bleep] I'll switch back to my good one. I pop it in and sure enough everything comes right back on! Like no problems. It worked like normal for about 3 weeks. Then about a week ago my monitor light will go yellow as if no signal. Sometimes my computer just resets when that happens too. Also when I reset my computer my keyboard wont kick in sometimes. But about every 4th time resetting my comp everything kicks in and works like butter!

Well, this made me think maybe its my motherboard and not the video card. So, I happen to have another mother board exactly like the one I have no in my closet. So I swap 'em out and same exact samething happens. So seems motherboard is fine.

So I plug in the crappy vid card agin and wow.. everything works fine.. put my good one in and it doesnt... So it does seem its the vid card. But, I want to ask if there is anything else it could be? Or does it seem like my card is fried?

The good card is a Radeon x700 AGP 128. I should note that he crappy card is a PCI.
