Specs: Windows 7, 4
Ok so my graphics card is not working. Recently my computer stopped working and i reinstalled windows 7 to fix it. It has worked on the same monitor before but now I don't know what happened. Any ideas?

Normally I would say install the graphics driver, but you should still get a video signal even without the proper driver since Windows uses it's own generic driver as a substitute. So it's unlikely to be a driver issue.

That leaves faulty hardware, specifically:

1. The VGA cable, or
2. The graphics card itself, or
3. The monitor, (unlikely though, since it's displaying "no signal")

Go to this page and use the auto find option for the correct drivers.

The error "No Video Signal" is not usually a driver issue, as I said in my earlier post. It's more likely a hardware or cable fault.

Pip is right, I didn't read the post close enough. Well, you have a link for the drivers anyhow. Sorry.

I like when they fix themselves, unfortunately it doesn't happen nearly enough.
