Problem- My desktop turns on, but doesn't connect to the monitor.
Backstory- this desktop is from the Dell Inspiron line, I've had it for about a year now. I was restarting and after it got to 33% the monitor went black. I held down the power button to reset the computer after a while of waiting and the monitor says "No Signal". I've tried power cycling, resetting the BIOS, reseating the RAM things, and different cords and monitors. My graphics card is integrated into the motherboard and I made sure there were no screws rolling around. When I fire it up the fans turn on and everything but caps lock is unresponsive.
I'm pretty much screwed because my father is on vacation (he's a techy guy) and as far as I know the warranty doesn't cover this.
PS- I had it unplugged overnight and I plugged it in and restarted it. I saw the Windows logo on an old monitor I'd hooked up with a video cable, but when I changed monitors, it pooped itself again and won't work.
