What could cause my VIDEO CARD to fail?

First it would run for around 5 minutes after boot up, then flicker and go black. Now it doesn't come up at all. Monitor checks out good.

Most likely your card failed. Since you have checked out the monitor and it is good, there isn't any alternative. Another way to check, is IF your motherboard has integrated video on the board, remove the card and switch to onboard video; if you get video on the monitor that pretty well finalizes the verdict. You can also make sure that if you have a cooling fan on the card it is still working, the card may be overheating. But if nothing works now that probably is not the problem.

    That's what I thought. I just replaced it and everything is back to normal. Thanks.

What is RAID? Can this cause video issues? Can the Video problems be ralated to the PSU?


RAID is where you use data in stripes over many disks to improve reliability, one disk can go down and can be replaced without rebuilding machine. RAID is not appropriate for a single disk machine.

What could cause my VIDEO CARD to fail?


This could be a simple failure of your video card. However, I had this happen and found out it was a heat sink that had come loose from my motherboard. (Heat sinks are the aluminum blocks, with fins, on top of CPUs on your motherboard, or on advanced graphic cards.)

HI! Fujitsu Siemens S7020WL1 doesn't start, black screen and 3 beeps, 1 long and 2 short. Any hint what the problem might be? Appreciate, Leuben (leuben@eol.ca)


Hi there,

It differs between manufacturer slightly but usually 1 long and 2 short beep codes often means that there is a problem with the video card/graphics card of your computer. This could be bad news for a laptop, as most of them do not have discrete video cards that can be replaced.

I had a custom built computer that was damaged in shipping: P55A-UD4, i7 860, ATI HD 5870, 8GB ram, Windows 64 bit, 120GB SSD running 3 monitors (2x20" 5:4, 24" 16:10). It would start-up but fail...


With everything you have i would look at power supply and see if you have enough power supply to operate video card motherboard etc.
Power supply could be overloaded and not able to operate video card correctly.
Which could cause issues with trying to run 2 or 3 monitors

Flickering screen


Hello,

The flickering problem you have is caused by a failing power supply. There are parts called capacitors that are failing and causing the power supply board to put out pulsing voltages until it can stabilize. We have a repair guide posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-214t-repair/ If you can soldethen you should be able to do the repair yourself. If you don't want to do the repair we offer a repair service for this unit. You can get details for that service here: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/service-request-form/

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop..the screen goes almost black after 5 minutes.


The screen goes black while in normal mode right? So try to boot in safe mode (power on then keep tapping F8 then select safe mode). Check if still happens in safe mode.

If screen does not goes black in safe mode it means there might be a software or driver causes problem when running in normal mode. You can try the following (update your anti virus software then run a full system scan, uninstall the video driver then download and install the latest one, uninstall any previous windows update or you can system restore to the time when it was working fine).

If the screen goes black even in safe mode they try connecting the laptop to an external monitor if still goes black, if yes then absolutely no issues with the LCD panel. You can try (uninstall and reinstall the video driver if still persist then this might end up replacing video card or motherboard, but before doing that update the BIOS first).

If does not goes black in ext monitor then the LCD panel might causes the problem. Reseat the LCD cable or inverter if you can.

Palit Geforce 8800gt 1Gig Glitches + BSOD


Nvidia's recommendations for the 8800GT are 26 Amps (I think) on the 12V rail... Although you would think 20 Amps would be enough, my next step would be to uninstall the video card driver again, get yourself a copy of a program called Driver Cleaner dot net, run the program in safe mode to completely remove all of the Nvidia driver, then reboot into Windows, download the latest WHQL driver for your card from nvidia's website, and see if that fixes it. If not, either try the card in a system with a more powerful power supply, or get a more powerful power supply, and see if your error goes away.

Flashing on and off


I would suggest trying another monitor to rule out your PC or monitor card. I would also check the video settings on the PC. Then assuming your cable/connector and video card are okay, it sounds like a lamp or lamp driver (a.k.a. ballast or inverter) issue. In other words, an internal issue that probably needs component-level troubleshooting.
