Are you running an additional Video card? Or are you using the built in one.
You might try cleaning the connector / plugs with acetone from finger polish remover or de=natured alcohol.
Never jam anything on a computer.
If its an add on card, remove it and reboot. Shut down and reinstall card and reboot.
keep me posted please,

    Now I have a bunch of question...gee thanks!

    Have you tried to do a system restore?
    Since I have no idea how much you have done, I will add a group of stuff.

    I do think a system restore will solve it but, read through this and apply those that fit.

    Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
    1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
    2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
    3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?
    4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up.This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER
    On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background.
    You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power.
    Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.

    And get the drivers for your sound. I am to assume its an onboard sound. You need to go to MFG's web page and their driver download.

    Thanks!

    Then it is still under Warrenty.

    Have them send a technician.

    Most mfg's will. If not take it back. get XP and not Vista. There are a ton of issues with the Vista OS.

Bought a new computer and it just has a usb type port how do I connect the moniter


Depends on the monitor does the monitor have a hdmi input port ?
The usb type port you describe - I suspect is a HDMI port.
The monitor I am guessing has a vga only input
as you did not provide us with the make and model numbers of any of your devices involved I can only guess on the situation ?

You might be able to go to a computer retailer and ask them about a HDMI to VGA adapter for your monitor if this is the situation you have

How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
