I'll try my best to be specific as to not confuse, but since I already am, it will be tuff.
We have two computers. My sons and mine.
My son's computer has the ASUS A8N-Premium MB and an EVGA 8600 GTS Graphics card.
All works fine and dandy.
My computer.. piece of s....
I upgrade his computer, new motherboard (ASUS M4A79 Deluxe), cpu, and graphics card EVGA 9800 GTX
All works awesome..
I take his old, but still cool stuff and put it in a new case. Same CPU, memory and all...
Here's the problem, "no video is coming out of the graphics card (8600) now". I swap out the
old 8600 for the new 9800 and presto, now I get video. Everything is loading up nicely and
working properly (OS wise). I give him back the 9800, but the 8600 that was working just hours
ago back in and I'm back to no video.
So I figure the graphics card went bad during the move. How, I don't know. So I go to
the store and buy a new 9800 GT for myself. Install it, presto "NO VIDEO". Put it in
my sons computer, still no video.
My best guess is that the 8600 went bad and that the 9800 gt that I bought is bad, because the
9800 GTX works fine in both machines.
Your thoughts and opinions would be appreciated before I go running back to the store whining
like a little boy to return the 9800GT
Thanks in advance!!
