Re: Do I have a problem with my graphics card????
Try Advanced system Optimizer available at cnet and acracked one is also available from uTorrent.Install it and during startup enable NUMLOCK on the keyboard during boot up. This should solve the problem unless your PC requires a seperate driver for the Keybord, in that case update the driver too.........sodeep

The usual problem with a completely blank screen, even with known working monitors is the graphics card. Relatively easy to put right with a new graphics card unless the graphics is built into the motherboard. This can be checked by looking on the back of the computer. Is the video outlet grouped with the keyboard, mouse etc sockets or separate from these. If it is with these the graphics card is built into the motherboard and would be uneconomic to do anything with unless the board takes a separate card. If you want to try a separate or different graphics card, make sure you get the correct interface, PCI, AGP, PCIe etc etc
Hi Tigistunet are there any bleeps on startup? try checking that the card in in securely, remove and replace should be sufficient, if no joy then I think that your graphics card is most likely at fault, this will stop the pc from booting and prevent the mouse and keyboard from being powered up. Unfortunately it could be almost anything but I would start with the graphics card. Hope this helps.
No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard. you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged. I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard
The fact that the monitor displays the "no signal" message confirms that your monitor is getting power and switching on but it's not getting a signal from the graphics card, either due to a fault with the RGB cable between the PC and monitor or a fault in the graphics card itself. If you're convinced that the cable is fitted securely, then the next most common cause of this is a loose or defective graphics card. Taking appropriate precautions against static electricity, open the system case, remove the graphics card and then re-seat it carefully but firmly in the slot (you'll need to disconnect the monitor cable first). Make sure that the copper contact edge is making a secure (i.e. relatively even) connection across the whole length of the card.
Do you hear any beeps? Is this a new problem? Were things OK before?
Are you familiar with opening the case? Do you have the manual?
Inside you can: Check if the fans run; clear the CMOS; Re-seat the RAM; Vid Card; CPU; those would be initial tests. Check for red lights on the front of the case & or the board itself. If no beeps try starting with the RAM removed: any beeps now?
If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor. This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too. If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time. If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.
use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.
Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault.
Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot.
The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory.
Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
