I was monitoring the card temperature and it was running kind of hot, at least hotter than I was told it would. 75C at idle. So I thought maybe the cooler I bought wasn't working right, I put the stock one back on and rebooted and I was getting the same problems. I went back in to the computer and noticed that I somehow unplugged my back case fan and I thought this must have been where the problem came from.
This time I went to boot and no image. I messed around with the card and nothing, I tried cleaning my RAM, and resetting the CMOS. Finally I decided to try my old card. I got an image, but I can't boot Windows anymore. Not even through safe mode.
So other than that main problem which I can't figure out I have some other things I'm wondering.
-Is there any way to tell if my card is dead? Maybe it's not getting power? It was a little rough coming out of the AGP slot every time but nothing broke or bent.
-Why wont it even let me boot in safe mode?
