Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If you have power and you hear your computer running but screen is black, your cables are connected and screen power button is on, No dots, dashes, words at all, usually that indicates the graphics card or ram is blown. Much more rarely a bad CD/DVD drive defect can block motherboard monitor drive.
Usually there is a used computer parts dealer in major cities and fault confirmation can cost under $10.00 if you can switch graphics cards yourself. Take your card in with you for slot style matchup. Nearly all computers can handle a card switch without data loss. Labor and time saving to try a card with Windows drivers resident, buy a universal or common brand.
