Is my motherboard bad?

Hey People,

Not long ago, my computer quit working. I narrowed it down to my video card. I have or had a PCIe card in my computer, but it stopped lighting up my monitor. I don't have another one to try but I did have a regular PCI video card so I tried it and it works fine except for degrading my performance. Although when my computer boots, after being completely off, my monitor will have a weird almost flashing, burning looking display while it is booting and a hissing like noise will come out of the built in speakers of the monitor. By the way it's an I-Inc flat screen monitor. After it boots up, all things seem fine. Since my display stopped working with my PCIe card but is ok with my regular PCI card, should I be thinking the PCIe card is bad or my motherboard? I'm having someone check my video card but he hasn't done it yet.

Thanks All,

All this computer stuff is basically one step above junk.

Either one could be bad.

Nothing has really been proven yet.

You have to test something to prove something.

Put video card in known working test board or try known working video in this card. Unless you have a factory bed of nails test bench.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I am guessing video card.
Do some networking and see if a friend has an extra one
