Anyone know the issue? My computer was working completely fine yesterday and I was playing Half life 2 all day. I exited out the game and went to download the free Deadspace from EA then turned off my monitor to return later. When I went to turn back on my monitor I was getting no image at all. Not even moving my mouse or keyboard made it turn back on so it wasn't on stand by. Restarted my computer and now after windows boot screen the monitor just shuts off?? My computer boots perfectly fine in safe mode but when I boot it regularly the monitor shuts off. I tried turning off all my services and start up programs and still nothing?
Could my of graphics card just died like that even though it was showing no signs of dying? I mean maybe certain games chugged a little bit more than usual but I'm not really sure it was that big of deal. It is about 5 years old. It was a Zotac GTX295.
Any input? Anyone had this problem and it WASN'T a dead graphics card?
