    Hey..
    I was playing COD4 and my computer freezed again. so I turn off my computer and turned it on but now my monitor wouldn't work. I heard welcome to windows sound but thats all.
    Monitor is just black and I cant get other monitor to work also.
    Is my video card broken?

    My ~3 years old coputer is: Ordi Enduro 7590BF
    Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2,2GHz
    nVidia GeForce 8600M GT 512MB
    2048MB DDR2 667MHz

    So you have tried plugging it into an external monitor and you still don't get any picture? That would indicate a fault with the graphics card itself.

    Try shining a torch at the screen when it is booting up etc. and see if you can see a feint image, if you can, it might just be the backlight / inverter that has failed.

    certaintly sounds like the graphics card is away if you can't even attach a secondary monitor.
