My mother's monitor went blank while playing a game and when you put another monitor on it it says no signal. How do I fix this problem? I tried putting in a new video card and it says the same thing. Gateway 310

no signal coming out from the video card input to your monitor. better check if the vga cable is properly fix on the video card and the monitor. you may need also to disconnect the video card from the motherboard and reseat it properly.
just make sure computer is turn off when you do this.
open the tower, on the mother board you will find the RAM card approx 6 inches long, take out the card and restart the comp, you should get the beeping sound and the mother board is fine, if no beep that indicates the motherboard has gone bad.
place the ram card properly into the same slot and then restart the computer. NOTE while putting your hand into the comp components always make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out or else you will get shock.
also check the cord at the back of the harddrive should be fixed properly. take it out and refix it at both ends . probable cause is there is some loose connection of the cord or the RAM.
It looks like issue with either mother board or processor.
open the box and remove all memey and power it on.
if it makes a beep sound, there is no issue with processor,
else we suscpect processor.
If it make beep sound, it might be mother board issue.
And for checking monitor working condition, remove monitor data cable and see no cable connected messages comes in monitor or not
Sounds like your dedicate video card bit the dust and you're back using the onboard video, which would absolutely be the reason why things got choppy-- it can handle the demands put on it by the games.
A new dedicated video card would fix the problems.
Well the monitor not being support is not the issue. the issue is the video card cannot produce a signal that is supported for the monitor. Its doing this to let you know also to lower your resolution because the monitor will pop if the resolutions is to high. the monitor itself does not matter if you had Vista as lond as the monitor agree with the signal your cool if it don't it will do this. Try lowing the res using another monitor then put the orginal back on and you should be good.
