    You're sure all power cables are good and have the right voltage and current output?

    EDIT: If you work on a lot of computer it may be worth getting one of these:

    Yes. I have one of those testers actually. I swapped out and tested everything as far as power cables. I also tested a generic low value pci-e card in its place and all the slots are functional. I removed the aftermarket cooler from the video card and re-installed the original cooling system and there is no change. I should have tested it in the system before I installed the aftermarket just to be sure it is a good card in the first place. This is crazy.

    Boy oh boy, I feel your pain. Really don't know what else to say. Maybe CountMike or someone else will jump in with fresh ideas. Good luck!

    Well I'm only at this job for one more day so it may not matter. I landed a sweet gig with the state of California DOT. I've worked here three years for minimum wage and haven't ever gotten a raise other than when minimum wage went up. Now it's an income of over 40k at the state and its a lot less work. I'm really only trying to finish whats on the shelves before the next guy has to face the nightmare that is working here.
