I had just turned my computer on and windows was loading when the power in my neighborhood went out.
Normally, when I turn my computer on, the video card fan spins up, then slows down, POST and windows boots.
Now, after the blackout, the video card fan spins fast and wont stop. Nothing is displayed on the monitor. The monitor does not detect that the video card is sending it signals, it just stays on standby. No POST or beep codes.
This is what I have tried so far:
- My motherboard has 2 PCI express slots and I tried plugging the video card into both of them but that didn't fix anything.
- I have replaced the power supply, that didn't fix anything.
- I cleared the CMOS, that didn't fix anything.
Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong?
