    Ok, go in and reinstall Windows, delete the partitions and install fresh.

    Use the Disk that came with the MB to install the drivers for the MB etc.

  4. Couple problems with that friend. I'll need to wait until I can use my buddies external hard drive, it didn't come with a driver cd, and I don't have a cd/dvd reader.

    Brand new MB didn't come with a driver CD?

    You don't have a flash drive?

    You can download all the drivers etc from Intel.

    And you don't have Windows on a flash drive either?

    Do you have the actual Windows Disk?

  6. I have a flash drive with the drivers on it, but like I said I have to wait until I can back up my hard drive

  7. Can you really be certain that this will do anything to fix the issue, when the issue itself has to do with POST?

  8. Well like I said before something is going on here.

    If the card is working in the other computer with the current PSU in the other computer.

    Pull that PSU out and put it in the current one and try and see if the graphics card is working.

    Reset the bois after you install the card etc before plugging in the power.

    Try that 1st.

    if the card actually works you should see something, should be able to get into the bois.

  9. If your buddy is coming over get him to bring his current working graphics card with him. The one he is currently using in his machine.

    That way you have a known working (no issues) card to test.

  10. What do you mean by no post?

    Or just no video, as in Windows starts etc but nothing on screen?

  14. Turns out the one time the gpu worked was a fluke. Gpu is dead I guess. RIP dream.
