Sry, I guess I did type it up pretty fast.....
I'll really give ya some detail now..........
Computer A -- First Computer
M955 PC Chips Mobo
6800 GS Vid Card
Was Working fine, tried to install video driver off of ipod and the setup failed. He powered down the system because it was locked up and whenever he turned it back on, everything came on, but he couldn't see anything. It's almost like the vid card isn't plugged in.... He doesn't have any led's on his keyboard, kind of odd i thought, but the pc speaker does two short beeps. (Now I'm no idiot I have bios post codes and have used them on numerous computers, but the ones he's getting just don't seem to add up). It sounds like two short beeps, but I'm unsure...My post codes say this is: Post Error- error code shown on screen, but we can't see the screen. It's all black, screen doesn't enable itself either.
At first I thought it was a mobo problem, but I tried onboard and it didn't work so we deemed it a mobo issue.
So he get's his Asus P4V800D-X and puts it in along with the 6800 GS and it doesn't work. Still yet the computer turns on and everything, bios beeps twice again, but no feed to monitor. So it wasn't the mobo......Well we grabbed an extra PCI graphics card and stuck it in and it worked....for about an hour. Now this PCI graphics card is doing the same thing that his 6800 GS was doing, with the no video feed. Perplexing I know...
He took that PCI vid card out and put it into the HP computer and that computer worked fine with the card in. Took it back out and tried again in Asus mobo still yet no feed.
I'm confused now, hope someone can understand all that.
I would say the best thing now for us to do is reinstall WinXP Pro and see if that fixes all of the issues, unless someone has some suggestions
