Replacing PC internals can be tricky; it's sometimes very dependent on the type of tower/brand of PC you're using, as some have the USB ports a unique size and are fixed into quite hard-to-reach areas. What's the make and model number of your PC tower?
So, the monitor works on the laptop but not on the tower. That tells me that the Video Card in the tower is bad. You need to replace it. If you're getting the message on the display that says "No Input Signal", then your video card has gone bad.
On a laptop you have a built-in card reader. But on a desktop you must have an external card attached to a USB port. If you want to download pics from the card then 1. If it is in a camera already, you attach the camera to the computer via the USB port and from My Computer access this camera and copy/paste the pics that you want. OR 2. Buy a card reader for your type of card and attach it to the computer via the USB port.
Shut down your computer the proper way if possible, via your
"Start" menu. If your system is completely locked up, however, then
press your PC's power button and hold for 5 to 10 seconds, and your
computer tower will turn off.
Unplug your computer - this is a very, very important step!
Unplug your PC from its power supply. This will typically be the
uppermost black cord at the back of your tower. For a notebook or
laptop, remove the computer's battery and then un-pug its cord from the
laptop. It is not enough to switch off your surge protector - you must
unplug the cord from your laptop.
Wait for at least 30 seconds after all you computer and
Internet equipment is unplugged. This will allow enough time for any
residual power to drain out of your different devices. You can speed up
the process as you wait, by pressing the power button on your unplugged
computer, which will help to drain all the power that is left over in
your PC's motherboard.
4 Now reconnect all the Device and check the issue should be resolved. Please try connecting the USB device directly to the Computer's USB port.
Hope this should resolve the issue.. Please get back if the issue still persist.
