Re: GTX 280 no video and unusual fan action
Do you have another Mobo you can try the card in?
To me, if you can remove the card, reinstall it and get a 1 time boot with video..the issue is probably the PCI-e slot on the mainboard.
However it is still possible that it will 1 time boot and be the card, but it's not likely.
Have a friend try it in his machine and see if it will work.
