We have a computer that we built ourselves a couple years ago and, just recently, decided to upgrade the graphics card from evga 5600 to evga 6600. We checked to make sure that this is supported by the mobo and all seemed well.
We did the switch with no problem but when we restarted it, we got a message that said that the system couldn`t restart from where we were. I unfortunately forgot the exact words in the message but I believe that it mentioned hibernation. We were in hibernation before we changed the video card but went out before we did it.
The message gave us options. We tried to use the mouse to choose an option and the mouse didn`t work. Nothing worked. Mouse, keyboard or any of the usb`s. After trying to get them to work for probably 10 min., the monitor went off.
Now, we turn it on and all we get is a black screen. I believe I can hear the hdd`s spinning but there are no beeps at all. It just won`t boot. Tried XP disc and that didn`t work.
We have, in the past, had trouble with the mobo and we`re thinking that this may be the problem.
