Sorry if it seems rushed or if there's already a post on this topic. Kind of wrote this on the fly since I was rushing to leave the house.
I have a problem with my graphics card, a while ago it started telling me that the manager wasn't up to date for the card, so I updated it, but I continued to get that message (well the message was something along those lines, I should've written it down) but it ran fine, then I realized that when I shut down my computer, it would take three whirs before it booted up, like it would "rev" once, click off, another time click off and finally it would boot. Now yesterday it did the same thing, except the screen never came on, thought maybe it was the ram stick, took out one, still nothing, disconnect my harddrive still nothing - as you can see, I really wasn't too keen on having to disconnect my graphics card - but finally I disconnected the card and voila the ***** boots, so I used onboard graphics.
So my thing is like is my card fried or have the drivers disappeared or something? And before I forget, you know how windows makes that sound when something has been plugged out? That happened when I first got the problem with no screen. Soon as it booted, that sound was heard and no screen - monitor button was orange -
My PC specs:
Dell Inspirion 530
Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
3 GB R.A.M
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.20GHZ processor
*sniffle* no graphics specs think it's like 1 Gig onboard though, not quite sure. But any help would be much appreciated.
