Question about Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB Graphic Card
Well i installed my graphics card several months ago and have been enjoying the card on all the new games i bought. However today, out of the blue when i turned it on i got a black screen, the computer was on. I restarted and still the black screen. So i plugged into my old motherboard Card.. oldschool GF6100, and that worked. Now i went into Control Panel and was looking for where my Card was. And i cant find it on the menu. Its as if it has disappeared. Nothing has changed internally that i know of.. The card is still getting power the fan is even on. Is my 8800 dead or what? How would i find out? HELP!!
Is it in the device manager?
if not it isn't being recognised, jut restart with the card out, shut down and restart after you put it back in. Did you overclock the card? if so clock it down to where it was. In the bios make sure it's recognized and selected, it may haver defaulted to pcie or agp, I'm assuming it's PCIE, like mine so go in and see if it's running in the right mode. Also make sure the fan is running or it will burn it out. You need to go into the system and then device mgr, then hardware, only reason I tell you is we don't know who we are dealing with, you could be and advanced user or a new one. If you need more help take a chat ask for gymowner I run an SLI gaming rig, so I know prety much what you need, peace
