How come my monitor remains black even after replacing my graphics card?

by on September 10, 2010

Q: My computer display does not show up. At first I thought it was my graphics card but I replaced it with a brand new graphics card and the display still doesn’t come up. What could be the problem? POST does not beep at all.

    Verify the new card is installed correctly, try a different monitor if possible. If the monitor just started coming up blank one day without making any hardware changes then it could really be just about anything. CPU, RAM, Motherboard, PSU and associated wiring can all cause issues.

    A cheap Power On Self Test Card ( http://bit.ly/clcHXd ) might be helpful to see if you’re making it through the full POST test or bombing out before it begins.
