Question about HP Computers & Internet
I have an HP Pavilion a1777c with a GeForce 7500LE video card. My computer turns on but the monitor is blank and says ''no signal''. I have checked it with another monitor and it says the same thing. I have gone through the HP troubleshooting and think maybe I need a new video card? is it a PCI or AGP card that I need? Do you think that this will solve my blank monitor?
Try reseating the video card to see if it fixes the problem.
If it doesn't the the video card is faulty, take the card to your computer shop and get a replacement that matches the specification of your faulty video card, the card would most likely be an AGP card.
On the motherboard you can identify the AGP slot/connector (brown colored) because it does not match the other PCI slots (white colored).

If the computer is starts up normally other than the no-video problem (that is, you hear all the normal sounds from the computer and the usual Windows startup music), then you probably do need a new video card. According to HP's spec page for the motherboard used, you'll need a PCI-E video card. Don't confuse this with a regular PCI card which has a different connector.
The spec page also says the board has integrated graphics. so you could remove any video card that's been installed and try booting with the built-in video. If everything else is working properly you can use that until you get a new expansion video card.
If the trouble is that the computer's not booting at all even though it's coming on, you'll need to figure out why. This might be a memory or video problem, although these usually cause some beep code if the motherboard gets into its POST (power on self-test). If nothing at all happens, this is often the sign of a bad power supply, processor chip or system board.
