I turned on my computer today and had no display. I heard beeps however. I investigated the cord and seeing if anything was loose. Afterwords I thought the graphics card was dead, so i started to use igp. I later tested the card in a different motherboard and it actually worked, which made me relief. I have come to the conclusion that it was actually the slot. Is there a way of fixing it? I would also like to know (if possible) how such a bizarre thing happened lol :laugh:.

Not really important if there is no solution. I don't really care much as the board has igp and is still useful. I also have another motherboard.
