Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Compaq Presario 7118US. All of a sudden, the computer will not boot up, or rather, we don't get a picture on the monitor. I tried a different monitor thinking it was the problem, but it did not work. It has a GE Force 2 video card in it and I thought maybe that was the problem. So I ordered another replacement card, put it in and it still does not work. Any suggestions? There was only one place to plug the card into the motherboard or I'd have tried it in another slot.

This may sound like a stupid suggestion, but does the motherboard have a built-in video card? If so sometimes they override the additional one, until it is set to use the additional one.
What happened before the picture died? Was the pc turned on and then all of a sudden went black? Was it turned off and then when you tried to turn it on - it wouldn't go on?
On the monitor, what do the lights look like when you turn on the pc? Is there a green light, does it turn orange? Is it always orange?
