My X51-R2 appears to have taken a break. I get no video output from HDMI, DVI or that other style of connection. LOL. Computer still can power on and off but I do not get a bios screen when I start it up. Does this mean the graphics card may have went out or the motherboard? If its the graphics card, is there a way to confirm and test the graphics card? When this computer went out it felt like I lost my best friend. LOL just need a little assistance Thank You.
What about the on-board HDMI port on the top (its around the USB ports)? This port is for the Integrated Intel card, so if you get an image using this port, it could very well be a problem with the discrete video card.
