This will be a lot easier, since i get the feeling i'm gonna be needing to post here a lot (for therapeutic reasons, if nothing else)...

So this last conundrum thrown at my limited knowledge of computers is as follows:

Friday night we come home with friends and i turn on the comp to play some music. After a few minutes i remember that i turned it on, look at it...
Nothing on the screen! Hmmm....
Try it again...
No go...again...iactually get my bios screen then my mobo screen and then it's black again...

Saturday morning i put my old 7600GT in and it works! This is really getting on my nerves now.
Oh and another thing, the headset that i've been using for a long time also decided to quit along with the gfx card...

I'm seriously starting thinking about buying a console.
Well, not really, but i might start thinking of starting to think of buying one soon...

thing is ....

1. if you buy a console you wouldn't get the satisfaction of kicking the shit out of the pc then having the fun trying to repair it ...

2. if you had a console you would have far too much time on your hands and get board

3. you would have too much money spare with no pc bits to buy

and not forgetting ... we'll miss ya lol

strange .... i get the same thing today only i didnt install any hardware.

I woke this morning plugged my USB caption card in and pressed the on button... pc running no hard drive activity and black screens on both monitors... strange i thought as last night i installed the new nvidia gfx drivers... anyways i pressed the magic button and rebooted... same again :/

i try again but this time i remove the USB caption device and all boots OK

not sure if having the caption device in the USB port on boot-up is the problem as im running now .... i plugged the caption device in after boot-up and works fine :S

Just an update...
Still haven't taken the 8800GT back to the shop, no time whatsoever...

But last night i'm turning on the comp and after booting i get the totally scrambled colors on the screen (with my old 7600GT)...
Could it be that my MoBo is having a hard time communicating with Gfx cards?

Oh, after a restart i get normal display...

new episode of desperate mum

i thought i'd take it to the shop today but decided to give it another shot
stuck the 8800GT in
everything works
go figure
it'll probably quit on me again just when the warranty runs out...
