Hey everyone,

Im currently helping out a friend with a video display problem. So far, we have tried two different video cards on 2 different mobos; but there is no display at all.

I swapped one of these video cards in my current machine (Which is a good computer)... but still, no display.

I swapped my good video card (The one I am currently using from the above good computer), and put it in one of the bad computers that is having the display problem....Still, no display; although it works fine in my pc.

All computers seem to boot fine; there is simply no display at all.

Could it be that both video cards are bad? If so, why doesn't my video card work in one of the 'bad' machines? Could it be that both pc's mobo's are bad? I am assuming so, but want to see if I can get some more opinions or options to try before jumping to that conclusion.

Thanks for any help!

It would help a bit if you told us something about the cards and motherboards you're using.

are you sure the display is good?
My LCD works fine with my machine (and my video card.) However, placing one of the 'bad' cards in my machine yields nothing on the display. This, of course, makes me suspect the card is bad... But why would my card not work in their machines either?

I dont have both machines with me atm. I have one; I will see if I can get the motherboard type from it...

The video card I am currently testing it with is a e-GeForce 7900 GT

Hm... when I was playing with the 'bad; machine, it failed to boot. After a few headaches I tested it with my good psu and it still failed to boot. I know the psu is good because it is in my machine that I am using as I type this post.

/me starting to suspect bad motherboards. I am still surprised how 2 mobos can die at the same time though...Unless the other pc does have another issue that I am not aware of..
