|I bought a new computer recently, and since the first time I plugged it in and turned it on, it had this problem.|
Basically, 50% of the times I try to turn it on, it doesn't boot. There is no beep and the monitor shows "no signal." If I shut the power and try again 30 seconds later, it usually starts up just fine (it beeps, monitor has normal signal, etc.). This happens like 3-4 days a week. The other 3-4 days, no problem at all.
I've tried starting it with everything else (mouse, keyboard, etc.) unplugged. I've taken out all of the ram and put it back in and made sure it's all as tight as possible. I've done the same thing with the video card, and also tried the video card in a different slot. The same problem is still present.
Based on all of the above, the techs think it's definitely a defective video card and are sending me a new one.
Does this sound likely to you guys too?
