I was thinkin yay it was just a CD burner but I was wrong... When I put the graphics card back in everything appears to boot correctly other than the fact that I get no video. I have reseated 3-5 times now. Oddly enough about the third time I reseated the card I forgot to connect the 6pin PCI-e PSU connector and it properly booted. I was again thinking yay no more problems but I put my rear fan back in and connected the PSU it was another failure. I attempted again without PSU connection with no luck. Also I would like to point out that I clean my computer atleast once a month and there was no reason that my card should have had heat problems but it still looks as though this is the case.
Here are my specs:
P4 3.8ghz LGA 775 w/ stock cooler
Intel MOBO w/ 945gz chipset (I can't believe this is what I am using now...)
1gig (512 x 2) PNY dual channel RAM
550W Antec Trio PSU
2 Evercool 80mm case fans
Antec 120mm rear fan
Maxtor 300GB 7200RPM SATA HDD
Currently not hooked up/working
BFG Geforce 7800 GT OC 256mb PCI-e EDIT: The overclock was "factory" and I would have rather done without it.
Crappy cd burner from an old pre-built compaq
What are my options? How common is this sort of problem? Suggestions please!
