    Hi,
    Recently i had just moved my computer from a desk to a new one, and I unhooked all the connections and all that. Before the move, i had the monitor plugged into my graphics card, Nvidia 9800Gt. I hooked everything up the same, but I turn the computer on, and nothing shows up on my monitor. I'm using a DVI into the card. However when I plug a VGA into the computer directly, it works fine. I would like to know what happened, and if there is anything i can do? Anyone had this problem before?

    remove and reseat te graphics card and then turn it on, if that does not work, there might have been a static build up, so when you unplugged the cable you may have set that of, and blown the gpu. and also, if you can, borrow a friends GPU and plug it in and see if that works.

    I have tried a second GPU also to no avail. Could that mean it might be the motherboard?

    Yup, most likely so, don't risk anything else, just get a new MoBo. and one last thing, check for fat capacitors around the PCI-E area, a blown capacitor will look like this:
