So i just build a new PC about one week ago, installed windows and everything runs perfectly.
The following morning i wanted to show to my mom how fast my SSD boots so i turned the PC on, but about five seconds later it restart again and 3 beeps come from the PC before the BIOS logo shows, one short and 2 long beeps. the PC stays on, fans and lights all working but nothing shows up on my display. so i restarted it manually, but then somehow it boots to windows perfectly and seems like there is no problem!. i restarted it and it boots normally again. i could play games all day long without single problem!.
My PC turns on and off normally after that, so i figured there was actually nothing wrong.
but then in the next morning i turn on the PC and that beep things started again !!! exactly the same thing as yesterday happened. :pt1cable:
It's already one week and every morning i turn it on it always happens!!.
I'm really confused ATM. what happened with my brand new PC?? i googled about the beep and it says:
"Failure in video system", "An error was encountered in the video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered".
what does that mean? i'm sure nothing is wrong with my video card as i could play all games smooooothly.
And why does it happen every MORNING??? does my PC get too cold and it needs warming up or something? hahaha :lol:

btw here is my spec:
Intel i5 3570 (non-k)
Gigabyte P75-D3
HIS HD 7850
Patriot 4GB*2
OCZ Agility 120GB (my OS is installed here)
Seagate Barracuda 500GB
CM V6GT
Seasonic M12II-620W
PC is connected to my old 32" HD Ready LCD TV using HDMI cable.

hmm what else? i hope i'm not forgetting to mention something. hahaha

Thank you.

Yeah i did reseat the video card yesterday but it's still the same.

Seems like this problem only happens when i dont use my pc for more than 5+ hours or something.
Weird....

Sounds like something somewhere loses contact until it's warmed up. Could be a faulty piece of solder. Since it's new, if you can, see if you can just return the card for another. If that doesn't work, it's the motherboard. I know it can be a pain in the ass, especially if you're an impatient individual such as myself, but that would be your best course of action.
