I have installed a new graphics card into my Packard Bell Ixtreme x8540 PC tower. The original card failed (or so I thought) my son tells me there was an error message before he shut down the system and it has never displayed a picture since. I have tried a different monitor and both an HDMI replacement cable and a VGA cable. The new graphics card has not made any difference. What else in a PC provides a picture to the monitor?
The system seems to be starting up ok, however I cannot see what's going on. Any help would be grateful.
Hello, I have tried my old graphics card and the new one.
They don't require external power. I have noticed that the hard drive light is not very bright and is certainly not as it should be. I have tried the hard drive in another computer and it says there is not enough memory. Recovery Recovery.
However I have tried replacing the hard drive with one I know works and also putting in the old graphics card with the replacement hard drive?
I'm running out of ideas. Would the low level light mean a power failure in psu?
