I have a custom built computer, about two years old a week or so ago I was having problems with my monitor shutting off mid use, and if i shut down left it alone for 30 minutes or so and came back later it would boot and work just fine.

Now I'm having the real issue, it doesn't work at all! I turn the power on and I get the message "no signal" on my monitor.

All fans are spinning, and sounds like it always have while booting up. However, once it has booted and has been running for several minutes i play with the keyboard by hitting caps lock, num lock etc. and no lights are popping on and off which leads me to believe the computer is not booting properly.

I've tried and done the following:

Bought a brand new graphics card
I put the graphics card in a new slow on the mobo
checked and cleaned all connections
checked and cleaned the old graphics card
reset CMOS
It is a brand new monitor and I have tried it on other machines and it works great. the cables came with the monitor and are also brand new.

So I'm stuck, frustrated, and am coming to your help. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

have you tried the PC on one of the other monitors - just in case ?

What type of Graphics Card - PCI - if AGP you do not normally have different slots
