    If you turn your computer on and it makes noises but the screen never turns on I would try another monitor. If trying another monitor doesn’t fix the problem then it is most likely that your video card died.

    It might be worth taking it to a compare repair store and seeing what they can find if you are unable to diagnose it yourself or are uncomfortable changing out your video card.
