Question about Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB Graphic Card

1 Answer

No Signal I was using my computer the other night when my cat knocked out the power to my computer. when i restarted the computer my monitor was not receiving a signal. i tried a different monitior to see if it was my monitor that was the problem, but no signal was still being sent to that monitor either. Can this problem be fixed or do i have to replace a part if? so which part? I have a Gigabyte 8800 512 MB, Asus motherboard, AMD Quad core processor, 900 watt PS, and overheating isnt the problem my computer was at a constant 86 degrees.

    hI,

    Can you tell if the computer is actually running ? Usually you should see the hard disk like (a cylinder icon) flashing during the boot process.

Just out of curiosity confirm that the power switch is set to 115/120 and not 230/240 (assuming you are the states)
Try These please
1- if the motherboard has a built in video card, plug the monitor unto that to test .
2- remove the video card from its slot then reseat it, then power on system
3- remove the memory and reseat, then piower on system

    ok try this

    take all the memory sticks out, and power on

    the system should beep, that will confirm if *********** board is doing doing its system tests.



    Secondly remove all devices on the motherboard just leaving the barebones, video and motherboard.

    Since you are already at it you could also reseat the processor.

    Hope this helps you to narrow down the problem

No signal on monitor


Do you have another monitor to test your computer? Looks like a surge went into the computer display and damaged the video card.

Entering power save


The reason why your secondary monitor is showing no input from computer is because of the display resolution of your graphics card, which is higher than what the Monitor can handle.
What you can try is, when your system is powered up, just go to your display settings, then reduce the systems display resolution to--preferably 800x600, then go to where you normally select the output, and select 'Output to external monitor"...this should send the signal input to the monitor.
I have actually dealt with a no input signal before, and this was what I did.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!

How to make use of 2 DVI outputs on Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO2 Graphics card


You need ATIs Catalyst Software to run dual monitors. Just installing the drivers is not enough. There is a bummer part of all this. Before you install the latest driver/Catalyst Crontrol Center, you will have to uninstall your current X800 software through Control Panel. If it fail to uninstall you will need to use ATIs uninstall software called: cat-uninstaller.exe. The first link below.
When you have the new CCC & driver installed you'll need to setup your dual monitors within the Catalyst Control Center. K
Uninstaller: http://searchna.ati.com/promosearch/?site=us-en&la=en&qt=cat-uninstaller&selectsite=ATI&sp_a=sp10039240&sp_p=all&sp-x-1=col&sp_f=ISO-8859-1&sp_q=cat-uninstaller&Search.x=9&Search.y=8
Radeon X800 Driver/CCC software: http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp
1 last item. Please make sure your operating system is updated. ATI wants you to have .Net framework 2.0 installed before you install the driver package.

Problem with computer


Try a good cleaning. Unplug the power cord from your PC. Remove the sides of your case. Using air blow everything off.
CPU, heatsink & PSU from both sides /outside to in & inside to out. Than remove the video card and clean its slot. Than clean the card its self. It would not hurt to remove your memory and clean their slots, reseat. Update windows!
If your broblem stops your done. If is hasn't doenload the latest driver from ATI: http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeon-prer300-xp.html Remove old drivers from control panel before installing new drivers. If your old drivers fail to remove. Download & run ATI's uninstall utility:
