My baby had an accident. after a nightlong LAN Party, ive dropped my computer down the stairs ! whe i poped the case open i saw that my huge videocard GTX 260 has got out of her slot and is now loose in the case. i've put it back but then ... the computer didnt boot up.
I noticed that the motherboard had slided a little to the right so i'ive loosen all the screws on it an put it back on. still dosnt boot up. i've tried to put the videocard in another computer, it worked. so tried another card in. it also worked. i've put my card back in before. the screen hangs on standby for about 10-15 seconds then boot up normally.
the problem is now I experience huge slow down ingame. ive made a benchmark with windows 7 and everything was exactly the same exept for videocard that dropped from something like 6.9 to 5.5.
is there a way i can find what causes the problem ? what should I do to get performance back ? how do I know if i need to change the video card or the motherboard ?
thanks in advance for ur help as im in complete distress. cryin' on the dead body in front of me.
