Basically I turned the computer on one day and the monitor said "No Input Signal", fooled with it for a while with no luck, tried hooking it to my TV, and still no luck. I removed the video card assuming that was the issue, couldn't believe it because the computer has barely been used to its potential since I had first purchased it 3-4 years ago, had used it on/off but not a daily machine. Anyways, took the video card out and stopped by BB and had Geek Squad pop it in their machine just to confirm that was the problem, they wouldn't say 100% but believed that was indeed the problem, don't worry I'm not dumb enough to pay them to do that.
So the machine sat and sat, I grew more frustrated and finally just went ahead and ordered a new video card so I went ahead and replaced the 8600GT with a GT220, got it in the mail today popped it in the machine and hooked everything up, turned it on, and....."No Input Signal", tried it on the TV, the Monitor, VGA, and DVI with no success. The computer sounds as if its booting up and everything is normal I'm just not getting and video output on any screen.
Getting very frustrated because I never really got to fully use this machine before this all happened and now its just sat and sat collecting dust. I wonder if it may be a compatibility issue or what, and now I wonder if the other video card is even bad.
Any help is appreciated and take it easy on me lol
