Here's a rather simple-to-explain problem, which I wish had a simple-to-fix solution.

In a nutshell, I followed this guide http://nvidiagtx295.blogspot.com/
to clean and replace the thermal paste on my GTX295. Followed step-by-step, replaced every screw, did everything as noted. Plugged the card back in, and nothing. It will not boot. I get the 7F error on the LED (eVGA mobo), and the long-short-short beep POST code. I understand 7F is a graphics card issue, but in figuring it out, I noticed its light is green, meaning no issues. So a green light on the video card itself, but a 7F post code. Any ideas where to even begin (other than re-disassembling the card to see if something inside became unhooked/disconnected)? Or, is this non-fixable and do I need to pony up and buy that GTX580 I've been wanting?

Thanks!

Joe

Re: Fan

I hate to say I don't know, but I thought about that after I posted the original post. I may throw it back in the rig tonight and find that out. I don't see why it wouldn't, as it did before. But that's a very good question. I will def check that out

Suppose the fan does in fact power up and spin correctly, any thing else I should/could look for? And other than GTX580, can anyone here request a good upgrade card, maybe in the $200-$400 range?

In that case, I may be SOL. I don't have another system, nor do I have access to one.

UPDATE: I found my previous card, Nvidia 7950 gx2. It works for now, until I figure out what's up.
