Re: Windows Crashing on Start up

ive checked everything and no lose connections or problems with fans. As far as the physical encounter, I found that it was a spare connector on a fan that when moved in a certain way caused the graphics card to shit its self down and go in a safe mode m guessing, prevent it from being shorted since...

So I shut down the computer...

Re: Think I killed my graphics card...

Yeah it does suck, its weird that it would come back after it first happened, then end up completly failing the next day, but oh well. Cant really remember when I bought the card though, its been a while, so probably wont be under warranty, might as well just pick something new up. The Radeon HD 485...
