Question about Dell (7933E) Graphic Card

Video output gone

I just reformatted my harddrive do to major virus issues. I formatted it by taken it out of my desktop placing it in another desktop as the slave and did a full format. Before I did this my Radeon ATI 9250 video card worked fine. I reinstalled the hard drive turned the computer on and No Video output. So I took out the video card and plugged the monitor into the orginal slot and still no video output. Then I tried a different monitor still nothing both in orginal slot and with the Radeon card. So then I removed the CMOS battery in some hopes of something. Still nothing. I have a Comcrap Presario AMD Athlon 1.8ghertz 750mb Ram. What could be the problem?

Destructive recovery

A destructive recovery IS reformatting your hard drive. Re-installing Windows and keeping the old files is the "Non-destructive" route. Remember that you will lose ALL your data if you format but that means the virus will be gone too. Try downloading Avast free antivirus and running a boot-time scan, once that's done download and run MalwareBytes anti-malware, that should clean you up without the need to format.

I have got a virus on laptop and don't have any protection and can't find the discs that laptop came with to wipe hard drive

As long as you have a Windows install disk you'll be fine. Just start the laptop with the disk in it, and you will somewhere have the option to format your harddrive. (you'll have to select advanced option in some menu) When setup asks for a license key, you should look for it on the laptop manual or the case itself. When Windows is then installed, the virus will be gone, and you will have a clean harddrive, but you'll also lose all your data!!!
If you have any questions, please ask them.

HP a1610n BIOS gone

The check signal cable is for the video input/output..since it is a desktop swap out the monitor with one you know works. If it works then you know its the monitor, if not then it is the video card...that should take care of it..

Reformating my gateway E 4100

reformatting a drive is a big undertaking, formating the drive will erase everything, including viruses, before you format you need to make sure you have all the discs including the windows disc, driver discs, and a factory restore disc, also you make check the documentation on your system because alot of the gaetway, dell, emachines systems have restore partitions installed on the drive. Also youll need alot of coffee and alot of time, most importantly aside from the windows disc youll need a driver disc for any ethernet or wireless card you have installed. without this you will not have access to the internet most likely and donloading updated drivers is very helpful. This is a time consuming proccess unless there is a restore partition on the harddrive, the documentation will tell you how toaccess it if it exists, if not a restore disc will be nice.

I have a major virus cuasing trouble with most my programs being able to update including my anti-virus software and windows updates, i cant download anything either because i get a message about...

If you have access to another computer with internet access, make sure that computer has the most upto date antivirus and malware scanners installed and slave your harddrive to it. As a slave you will be able to scan your harddrive without initialising your copy of Windows and therefore not initialising the virus on your harddrive.
