Graphics

Okk..so a few days ago was playing Dawn of war, and the screen went black, "No signal" and couldn't get it to work.

So take it to shop, they say its the video card, they download and re-install drivers and its fine...

Try to play dawn of war again today, same thing happens :S, so i try an older pci-e graphics card, and nothing :S...no change

So i have removed all graphics cards, and stuck monitor into this inbuilt card, (y'know little default blue slot on the back of pc case) god knows what it is, but everytime i try and play a game it says "error finding suitible display device" or similar...

I was using a 8800 gts..

Any advice, to fixing this like...nowish lol

Thanks & regards

Re: Graphics

Are you sure it wasn't your pc crashing?

What happens if you just switched it off and started it back up again?

And is it just happening in dawn of war?

Re: Graphics

Yeah, sure.

I restart and no input to monitor, and i'm not sure, i never get a chance to try any other game haha.

I will try the graphics card again.

thx for feedback
