I would really need some help with this, since my vga seemed to be faulty but the computer shop tested it and said “sorry but it’s okay”. So now I’m thinking that the brand new mobo’s pcie slot could be faulty but I don’t know how to test it.
I’m afraid to put another vga card in it cause if it IS faulty then I’ll have 2 slightly damaged cards or I could put back the old one and get it damaged for sure/or even better have the same problems as before but not finding the answer (which is damaged the mobo or the vga?)/.
Btw. the problems I had with my vga are the following (just in case someone knows it for sure what kind of error could it be):
1., When turning on or restarting the computer I don’t get any picture at all though everything goes on without problem (I’ve put in a pci vga nad replaced the cable so to see windows have fully started evethough I had no picture untill I didn’t put in another card).
2., While playing games (like TR Anniversary) the game play freezes for acouple of second WITH the sound then goes on. Same error apears during video playing (picture with sound freezes a bit then ok).
Such error does not apear with pci vga card (though this doesn’t prove anything other than that my newly installed windows is not faulty).
So doesn anyone have any idea (either to how to test the pcie slot or what kind of errors could these be /mobo or vga/)?
Any ideas highly appreciated!
