How would you do that? It need to be in the slot and power supplied to it to function. What are you trying to do?

Hello Grasshopper,

What I want to do is test my video card to see if is faulty. When I boot up my computer nothing shows up on the monitor, which leads me to believe my video card could be faulty. You may have another suggestion!

Hello. Is this a desktop or a laptop? If it is a desktop, does it actually have a card or do you use on board video which is on the motherboard. Have you tried another monitor? You could remove the card if it is a card, and try the video from the board. If you have on board video and a card, you will have more than one place to plug in the monitor. Post back with your specs.
