Mobo/Video Card issue?

I don't know what to make of this other than it being the video card, but before I say that though, my 8800 that I had in the system before the 4870 does the same thing with the no signal bull.


Today, I decided to reseat everything and make sure all was good and well, 4870 still powers up and such, so I ruled it as a PCIe slot error. Now here's why this doesn't make sense to me...

If the slot is defective, would it give a reading with lshw? Also what are the odds of both of my video cards having the same issue at the same time if it's not that slot? I don't know what to make of it unless lshw would still give a reading of the slot even if it doesn't work, which doesn't make much sense.

i wanna say its ur power supply or your motherboard shiting the bed

Found something to try and can use someones help. Everywhere I look for this all I find is this stupid "BiosUpdateAgent" Thing that they want you to pay for which is completely stupid.

Basically a guy said updating his bios fixed it, that's really all there is for me to try. The problem as I've said before, I have Phoenix - AWARD Bios 6.00PG Or something along those lines, I'll go look later and edit/post the exact, but I know it says Phoenix - AWARD. Is there anyone that can find an update for this at all without this stupid bios agent thing? HP and ASUS sites come up blank.
