Having problems with your HP GX612AA Pavilion Media Center M8330F Desktop PC ?

Clicking noise when i start my PC

\015 When i start my PC i get a clicking sound and the monitor doesn't display anything, its (the monitor) light just blinks. when i use the onboard graphics card with the old one still in but not connected to the monitor it still makes the clicking noise but eventually goes in and boots. When i tried an older graphics card it clicked a couple times then went in. i re-installed NVIDIA drivers and then tried the graphics card that was previously in and it seemed to work. that was 2 weeks ago and its doing the same thing. oh and how it started, i was playing a game and it was using alot of the graphic cards resources and there was a power failure from a stove. so i think it could be the drivers or the motherboard. Please help. Regards. Eric\015
