Hi, I have a problem with my 6950. I would like some help fast. Im sitting on my laptop.
After opening my case to check why the Proccesor fan is so loud. Taking it off, fixing some spikes and put it back. When I tried starting it up. My Graphics Card does not start up properly. Im pretty sure it's the Graphics Card.
Power supply fires up.
Processor spins up.
Hard Drive spins up.
DVD Drive Spins up.
Graphics Card spins up but does not start and I get no signal on my screen and it sounds like the computer doesn't start up at all.
The Graphics Card fan spins up and shuts down for 0.3sec and then spins up again every 2 sec. So its like in a repetitive state.
I didn't really touch the card since I thought it was the processor fan that made the loud noise.
But now it doesnt start up at all.
I did try putting it in a 6950 in a different socket but it does the same thing. Only difference I noticed was the fans span up in a higher speed. But same repetitive thing.

I built the computer with brand new bought parts last year in october.
I bought all the parts in Japan so if the MB has a failure, my Manual is all in Japanese..
