V9999GT (AGP)

Question: V9999GT (AGP)

I have run into a spot of trouble after playing a game. The game caused the Monitor to shut off and the computer to go into standby mode.Upon restart I get a POST message One long, 2 short. According to the A7N8X-X board thats a VGA adapter problem. So, I did the following:Changed ram, ran minimum hardware configuration, bought a new power module all to no avail. I changed the adapter to a really old TNT2 card and the computer works fine, just not with the V9999GT card. I phoned asus about it and they told me to do what I just did.The monitor gets a signal, the lights on the card work as does the fan. It even responds by powering down a little due to lack of heat creation, yet the screen remains black and the POST message is doing my head in. Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Any ideas?So you changed everything except the thing that it pointed to? Were both cards AGP? If so, it seems you need a new card to me.
