I figure I need a replacement graphics card. The PC worked fine yesterday. Turned it on today and no signal to monitor. Tried both DVI and HDMI with the same result. Monitor is Gateway LP2417.

try pulling the power cord out of the monitor and then wait 30 seconds and pull it back in to monitor . Are you dealing with a graphics card or a motherboard video chip. May have DVI and HDMI plugged into motherboard rather than PCI video card. Check Bios to see if conflict exists between motherboard video chip and PCI video card.

The video prt where you plug in the monitor cord is broke off. What can I do so my monitor works?

Is the port broke off the computer or the back of the monitor? If its off the computer and you have expansion slot available on the motherboard you can get a video card. Make sure you get the right type as a PCI video card will not fit in a PCI express or APG type slot.

It sounds like the placement of your video card on the motherboard is not correct. Try plugging out your motherboard of the casing and place it on top of the motherboard box with the black cover. Then plug in your video card and turn it on there and see what's going on.
If problem still persist, get an older pci video card. Then upgrade the cmos and try it again.

I would check the components inside the case...sounds like something wiggled loose while you were kicking it. Open the case...first check that all the cards (pci/video/RAM) are properly seated in their slots. Next make sure the hard drive plugs havn't wiggled loose. Post back if it still doesn't work

No display assus motherboard PSN73-AM ASUS MOTHERBOARD

When the PC starts up, do you get a BIOS display at all? Try fitting a graphics card into the board instead of using the built in port, if that works check the BIOS settings to see if the built in adapter has been disabled,

I get no video and the monitor is good. Need to

IT doesnt matter. If the Video Card is built into the Motherboard and has failed; you can get NEW Card that can plug into an Expansion Port on *********** board

Make sure your motherboard is compatible with the NEW video card. For example, PCI Express video cards won't work with motherboards designed only for AGP or PCI video cards, and vice versa. has a good selection. Call their Customer Service Tech; they have great prices, sales and knowlegable Customre Service Tech to Check if it is the right Type of Card. Its probably PCI but check anyway.

Simply shut down unplug and open the computer side panel and go to the back of the Machine. If there is a separate Card (it will be obvious as it has a VGA port) Remove it and just install your new card in its place and plug in your Monitor to the new VGA port. If not then just POP OUT A FREE SLOT in the back of your Computer next to the Plug In Port so the VGA port that the monitor plugs into stick out the back and plug in your Monitor.

Close , plug in and INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE VIDEO CARD. Set all settings to DEFAULT or be creative :)

Cheers !

It sounds like Windows might be loading a bad driver for your main PCI (assuming it's PCI) slot. Try plugging your monitor into the motherboard instead of the video card. Try re-installing your graphics card driver to the latest version, you can download these drivers through the company's website and looking for your video card's model. After re-installing the drivers, shut down your computer. Put your videocard in it's main slot and plug the monitor to it. This should do the trick.

Component that the moniter plugs into is bent and broke off

Go and buy a new video card, but first you need to determine what kind you need, AGP, PCI, PCI Express, etc.
If you don't have the pin diagram for the vga connector you can ruin the motherboard.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.
