old epox 9npa mob no video?
out of the blue iv lost video from my graphics card(pci-e) but iv tested the card and on that pc the card boot up fine and loaded in to windows xp fine. my pc loads up fine but just no video? the sound of window xp starting up fine? iv put in a old graphic 32mb pci card and it booted up fine? can a pci-e slot really die or do any one know what's going on?

Maybe a careful inspection of the slot's/Vidcard's pins may reveal something?

i did the other day. all i found really was a lot of dust around the pci-e i gave it a good clean tested it out and it was working again? can dust really stop a pci-e slot from working? i took a good look at the slot and the graphic card but could not see anything? iv tested it daily it its booting fine now? i could only put it down to the dust?

Glad your machine is humming again!
Dust? I'm afraid to open my box, the piles of it must be shameful!
