Hello, my little sister discovered this morning that the monitor wouldn't show any picture when she turned the computer on, so i tried to fix it.

Here's what i tried:


  1. Cleaning the computer
  2. Changing the graphics card
  3. Tried another screen (with the old and new graphic card)
If you need more information, just tell me! :)

I've now plugged the monitor directly into the integrated graphic card in the motherboard, and that works but i still want to know what the problem might be.

Plug your graphics card into a different slot in your motherboard?

Perhaps a new VGA cable?

Thanks for the reply, i tried a different VGA cable and my motherboard only has one PCI-E slot.
It sounds like it's the motherboard, and if you only have one PCIe slot, I'd reccomend a new motherboard. Are you doing any type of gaming/video editing, cause if so running off the integrated graphics is going to suck!

Yeah i think so too, or if it's only the PCI-e slot that is weird.
