Question about Computers & Internet
Monitor on HP Pavillion a656x---blew up the power supply--had an extra and installed it--when machine was turned back on--monitor displays "VIDEO CABLE CONNECTED?---what am I going to do----help!!!----ideas??
First thing I would do is try the monitor on another system to see if it's in the monitor or computer. Next would be to fire it up and see if you hear a beep from the motherboard. Most consumer pc's will come with a small speaker that sounds on startup. If you don't hear this beep it could be indicitave of a fried motherboard.
But it sounds to me like your video card or onboard video was messed up when the power supply conked out. If it's onboard video you may be able to switch to a video card. If it's a video card you may need to replace it.
Also check to make sure there are no loose wires, that your video card is seated firmly, and that your connectors are all snug. If none of this works then you're most likely looking at a motherboard replacement.
