The other day the fan in the power supply started making a noise. It was about five years old so I sent for a new one. About the same time there was no picture on the monitor. There was a message on my monitor that said it was working to check the cable and the computer. I turned the computer off and disconneted the cable and reconneted it and it was ok. But I didn't want to use the computer with a weak power supply. So today the new p/s came and I installed it. But now I get the same message. What do you think? Did the video card bit the dust? When I start the computer I get a beep code of one long and three short. I have award bios with a AMD cpu. If I have missed any need info for a answer let me know and I will try my best to supply it.

Thanks hounddog! I reset the video card and now that works. But now the NIC card and the usb card do not work. I don't know what happen. But I bet it has something to do with the fact that when I started the computer up after I installed the p/s windows started in the safe mode. Any ideas??

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
