Hey everyone. I've been having trouble booting up my desktop computer. It was restarting randomly a few days earlier, but I thought it was just because it was overheating. I put an additional fan next to my computer, and the crashes seemed to stop. However, this stopped working and now I'm unable to boot up my computer at all. It will give me the "Check the monitor cable to video card" message until I restart it a few times (Because of this, I believe it may be the video card that's causing the problems), and eventually it will get to the bios screen. When I get to the bios screen, the computer freezes before I can do anything and I have to restart it again. Does anyone know what could be causing this? It's using an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Mainboard and a Radeon 9200 video card. Thanks very much in advance.
