I have a 2013 R4. The only upgrade is a GTX 980.

As the title suggests, I'm getting 6 beep on start up and it goes no further which would indicate a graphics card problem. This is after crashing during gaming on a progressively more frequent basis, although sometimes it will freeze up if just left at the desktop for a long time. Up until now a power drain has worked to get past POST but, no more.

I chucked in a new £30 GC but get the same result. I've taken the button battery out and replaced with a new one.

I was wondering if there is anything else I could try before I bin it. I was thinking of getting a new rig toward the end of the year anyway.

graphics drivers may need to be installed or updated, bios update could possibly help as well. Try a different PCIe slot on the motherboard also if you havent already.

Thanks.

I managed to get it working again by resetting the BIOS with the jumper on the motherboard.
