Is my vga kinda dead?? HELP please!

#1silver__eaglePosted 10/10/2013 9:03:49 PM
So my vga from one day to another just stopped giving signal to my monitor through hdmi.
Tried connecting it to the vga port of my monitor using a dvi to vga adapter, but still my monitor gets no signal! Tried connecting it to my living room tv, same.

The pc itself detects the vga because I dont get the *beeeeep, beep beep* alert. The vga fan is working. I had it a lil bit OCed. Bought it like 2 years ago. What can I do?!

GPU overclocks are horrible because you're adjusting clocks with software.

RMA it.

So why is it that there are ridiculous amounts of people, including myself, who achieve good, stable overclocks (1250/1650 from 1000/1450) through software, which is the only way graphics cards can be overclocked (unless I'm missing something here), have been safely running our systems for extended periods of time?

Please, explain.

Ignore him, he's probably had a bad clocking card and is venting.

For the record, you can overclock graphics cards through the hardware by tweaking the bios, but that's not for a novice user as you can brick your card.

It was late/early; I assumed he meant you're supposed to OC through the mobo's bios. I feel kinda stupid for forgetting about flashing/modding graphics cards bios, especially since my card has two bioses.

It's the same concept of not overclocking your CPU in windows. You're relying on software/driver to hopefully not cause any conflicts. GPU overclocks are a do at your own risk. If you get issues like what the TC has; you know what to blame.

No, it isn't the same. Much more is going on with CPU overclocking and much more of the computer relies on the CPU.

Any type of overclocking is risky.

No, we don't know what to blame actually. It could be goddamn anything.

If you're not getting a signal with two different displays, then chances are your card is dead/dying - time to RMA (if it's still covered under warranty).
