My video card was fine this morning. I turned off my computer, went to class. When I returned and turned it back on, nothing. The fan is working on the video card but there is no output to my monitors.
I unhooked one of my monitors and plugged it into my motherboards integrated card; it works. The computer is booting no problem, there is just no output.
I tried cleaning the dust of it, nothing. Rebooting (many times), nothing. I even tried taking it out, blowing on it and then plugging it back in, but even the tried and true NES method did not work.
Can anyone tell based on this information whether it is dead? Is there a voodoo rain dance I can try to see if it works? The only hope I have is that the fan on the graphics card (which receives power from the PCI-E slot, no 6-Pin connector) still works.
