    While using my computer the other day an odd issue occurred where there was a white box on the screen, I couldn't figure it out and simply did a reboot to attempt to resolve it. And then neither monitors would work - both showing "no signal".

    I have tried:

    • Rebooting again
    • Reseating the HDMI + DVI connections
    • Plugging the cables into a new computer (it works there)
    • Plugging a VGA cable into the computer rather than the graphics card (did not work)
    • Restarting the monitors
    • Playing with the monitor settings.
    • Swapped out PSU
    • Swapped out harddrive
    • Taking out Graphics card
    • Taking out out RAM
    Any help is greatly appreciated. I run a Windows 10 and built my computer - has been running fine for a few years.

    To be more clear as to how my computer is working - all fans including the ones on the graphics card are spinning and appear to be working. Aside from a slightly odd sound on start up (no, not beeps. This sound goes away if I disconnect the CD Drive) everything sounds and appears to be normal. I'm a bit lost as to what the issue is and where I should go, any help would be appreciated.
