Ok no worries, I was after some voltage readings but there are none shown.
I will leave you to reseat the video card and post back when you can, if after you remove and reseat the card the screen is the same please remove the video card altogether and connect to the MBs onboard video port and see if that works ok.
I will be going offline myself shortly but will check back in the morning UK time, good luck.

Hi Fang'gar
The inside of your case looks reasonably clean however the grey card is the one that needs removing and the slot blowing out.

NB: Going offline now for around 4hrs due to other comittments but online all weekend forthwith :thumbsup:

No worries, it is not a question of how hard you pull the card just remember to first gently move the MB slots retaining clip and withdraw the card straight up, blow out the slot and replace the card securely, no excessive force is needed at any time as this can damage both the MB and card.
If you still have no luck refer to post #19 and try the MBs integrated video chip.

ok, hi. um i just tried to wiggle out the video card, but it only half of it partly came out and the other half is just stuck inside the slot.. um is it okay to just use the computer in safe mode with networking daily? because i don't know how to properly remove all the pieces inside to blow off the dust so i might take it to the store i bought the computer from and pay them to clean it?

thanks

Hi Fang'gar
From post #26

just remember to first gently move the MB slots retaining clip and withdraw the card straight up

Look inside your case where the video card sits inside the slot on the MB, the part of the card that is not coming out will be held in place by either a small plastic lever that needs to be gently moved sideways to release the card or it may have a round door handle shaped locking device that must also be gently moved sideways to free the card, once the locking device is moved sideways the card can be withdrawn straight up.

i tried to move it left but nothing works and it seems fragile. or do i move it downwards? I don't really see any other hooks.

No that is not it.
I have to go to work now and will not be back online until about 1800GMT, I will then provide an example picture to show you what you are looking for.
