    Aimee, I know you don't like working inside the computer. Do you know someone who could help you? It is a very simple job. Could you remove the graphics card and plug just 1 monitor into your motherboard slot and see if it works? You Motherboard has a connection for a DVI, VGA and an HDMI cable. I would try first with just 1 monitor. Use the same type connection you are using now, just unplug it from the card to the motherboard connection. Once you do that. Start up and see if your results are better.

    I think I would first see if the computer is under warranty. If it is, you can see what they want you to do. It is possible that the card is not completely seated, so the motherboard does not realize it is there. It could also be a dead graphics card or a defective motherboard where the PCIe slots do not work. That is what I would guess based on what little I know.

    For right now, I wouldn't worry about the hard drive test.

    Are you saying your monitors are not plugged into the card? They should be, if it was working. But, it shouldn't affect the CPUz detection. You could download GPUz (https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/) and see what it detects. It can give you a lot of info about your graphics. If you download it, please post a screenshot of the main tab and the sensor tab.

    I have one VGA connection and one HDMI they are connected to the motherboard. I removed the HDMI cable and connected it to the spot on the graphics card and it works.
    OK. I might try that later. If I have someone else do it it could take forever for them to come over.

    Here are the results from when everything was connected to the motherboard.

    Try connecting both monitors to the card and see what happens.

    I don't have the proper connection to plug the other one into the card. It will display with just the one monitor hooked up to the card though.

    OK, great. See if it works any better that way.

    The bios will display on the monitor hooked up to the card. I will run the memory test tonight before I go to bed. Thank you.

    You're welcome. I hope everything continues to work for you. I would use it just that way for a few days and make sure there are no problems. If there are not, you can buy an adapter to connect your second monitor to your graphics card. They are usually pretty cheap. I just bought a Display Port to HDMI adapter for about $10 to hook my third monitor up with HDMI.

    You may not need the Hard Drive test if you have no more BSODs. So, you might just wait.
