    Hello everyone,
    I've got a problem with my graphics card Nvidia 6800XT. It worked normally before but now I cannot start PC, it displays blank screen when I turn it on and I hear few beeps after that, but there's still nothing on screen. Everything works fine if I try with MX440 card or Graphics controller. I'm uncertain if it's really happening because of card and if I should test it on another PC. It may be because of power too, but I can't tell because everything was working fine before.

    Here's some info about my PC:
    • ASRock P4i65G
    • Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU, 3.00 GHz x86
    • 2.00 GB of RAM
    • Samsung SyncMaster 753DFX
    • Nvidia 6800XT (256MB) / Nvidia MX440 8x AGP (64MB) / Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller (96MB)
    • 160 GB and 20 GB Hard Disks
    • 230W Power Supply
    • Windows XP SP 3, 32 bit

    Thanks in advance.

    Test the card in another PC. It will likely work fine.

    Based on your specs, I'd say you need a new power supply.
