:tazz: A couple of days ago, I was plugging in a PnP external hard drive. When I plugged it in, the computer shut down. Since then, the computer will boot up and the boot process "sounds" fine, but I don't have video. I tested the video card on a different system and it works great. Did I fry the MoBo or just the AGP slot?

HELP !!

Hi cst527

Thanks for your email. However I'm a bit confused:
In your email you said you reseated the video card in the PCI slot but in your post, you mentioned the agp slot.

Can you clarify which it is for me please?
Also, can you confirm the type of connection that the external drive uses - I'm assuming its USB, right?

Samm,

Sorry it was a typing error on my part. It was the AGP slot. Fortunately the MoBo manufacturer has agreed to send a new board this week. But I was able to narrow it down to the MoBo and not the psu. Thanks for the speedy reply!
