i'v run into quiet a problem here, now i think it may have been my motherboard and i RMAed it alredy, now in the process of replacement or repair, i just want to get an idea of what gone wrong.
i have this 7 month old, first time gaming rig ---->Video and Spec link here
MSI P6n Daimond board with on board Creative xfi sound device
Xfx 8800GT 512
Q6700 2.66 quad core
2x1g 667 gskill ram and 2x1gb 800 OCZ sli eddition ram total of 4Gbs
thermaltake blue orb2 heat sink
vista ultimate x64
250g seagate hdd
ultra 750 psu
So one day, i had some sound issues, so i decide to look up updates for my on board XI-FI sound device, so i update it, and with any hardware update, or any at all, i had to restart my computer, and i do so.
Upon the restart, when it came back on, everything came on, lights, fans, CPU fan, ects.
The screen remained blank, so i thought it processing the updates, so i thought i go for a shower while i wait.
30 min, i go back and check, and yes its still blank. The funny thing was that my monitor went into sleep.
So as you would have guessed i restarted it a few hundred times, i did the whole switcharoow process, check my hardware if it worked fine, did the single video card, single ram, no hdd, no dvdd.
i dont think it was my cpu or psu since i'v been using it for this long, so it shouldnt go bad, and the psu was powering all the fans and lights, i tried 2 different video cards that i know works fine, i dont think it was my monitor since i tried to go S-video on my tv, it still remained blank.
so what i concluded was that the sound device driver update did something to the board to stop making it function properly, boot, or anything of the matter. so i though i'd just rma it. so just wana see what you guys over here think went wrong, what i should have done, any idea will help. thanks for reading!
