    Default No output from GFX Card !

    Hi

    My brother was watching a film via the hdmi out on his gfx card. Instead of switching back to the PC and shutting down, he shut it down while it was still outputting to the TV. When he booted the PC up in the morning it wasn't displaying anything on the PC or TV. He tried taking the CMOS battery out but that never did anything. Any other idea's ?

    Thanks,
    Marcus

    Check the graphics card is seated properly, and any other cards, memory etc.

    There are no beep codes, the system just seems like it boots into windows as normal without any display.

    I have tried re-seating the card but nothing changes.

    I'm presuming Fn is the same as the F-Lock key? I have tried this and nothing happens

    I have already tried using my mobo's onboard graphics. I have the same problem, the screen does not come on. Would it make a difference from testing my onboard graphics instead of a separate graphics card?
