Video card

Question

I was using the computer the other day and the screen went black and a message saying "no signal" came up. At first I thought it was a hard drive crash. So I tried a different hard drive and nothing different happened. Then I replaced the video card with one from my other computer and everything worked wonderful again. So I figured the problem was the video card. I ordered a new video card put it in and I still get the same problem. I know it is not the monitor because I tried a different monitor and I have the same problem. Most of the components in my computer are brand new. I also know its not the hard drive because it starts up as normal. I upgraded my chip and motherboard about 4 months ago so I have doubts that it is that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Hi [email protected]

I would try the new card in your old computer to see if it is any good.Some times new out of the box parts are faulty.

Also did the new card come with drivers that may need to be downloaded.
