My baby had an accident. After a night-long LAN Party, I've dropped my computer down the stairs! When I popped the case open I saw that my huge video card GTX 260 has got out of her slot and is now loose in the case. I've put it back but then the computer didn't boot up.
I noticed that the motherboard had slid a little to the right so I've loosen all the screws on it an put it back on. still doesn't boot up. I've tried to put the video card 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. I've made a benchmark with windows 7 and everything was exactly the same except 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 your help as I'm in complete distress. Cryin' on the dead body in front of me.
