Where did you put this???? On what part of the card???
The other day I took out my card to put on some thermal gel (I had been having heat problems) and when I put the card back in, hooked it up, and turned the computer on, it booted up to the desktop, and then shut off. I made sure I hooked everything back up correctly, and tried again, and it came on for about half a second, and shut off again. I unhooked the cable going to the card (left it in the slot though) and turned it on, and had no problems. I turned the computer back off, hooked the card back up, and again it came on for no longer than half a second and shut off again. Thinking the PSU was my problem, I bought a new one, which I got today, hooked it all up with the same result. So, what could be my problem? Is the video card shot?
