Hey,

So i was using my PC, and suddenly it froze. I restarted it and now i dont get any view from my GPU Gforce gts250. But my integrated GPU works fine.

I then checked my GF gts250 on my other pc and it worked fine!


So i thought maybe smth is with my PCI-e slot on my pc. I then put my old geforce 6200 and it worked! What the hell? :D
I then put my other GPU GF 7600gs and it didnt work!

So only gf 6200 works in my pc, what the hell?

My motherboard is gigabyte ga-31m-s2l

Fortron or FSP pw supplies are decent however anything can fail. I would first swap in a known good pw supply. If it still gives the same problem with a known good unit, then I would suspect the board has failed.

What is hard to understand? The onboard video works and the pci-e slot does not. Motherboards fail as do all other parts in a pc.

As I said, what is hard to understand? Both of the cards that do not work draw more power from the pci-e slot.
If you install a known working card and it does not work in that mb, it tells you that there is a problem with the board. VR failure, capacitor failure, etc. The only other option is that you did not fully seat the card. There really is no other possibility.

Next please use proper grammar and or punctuation marks. Your posts are difficult to read with out proper grammar.

Not really. You can buy a mb tester. It goes into a pci slot on the board and does basic tests however they are not all that reliable. Best test is to swap in a known good mb; you have pretty much done this already by testing the card in a working system.
Here is an example of a board tester; again not all that reliable.
