Removing the video card is not the first step to take....check the video cable make sure no bent pins in case it was removed then make sure it is connected firmly, then open system prefrences, go to accesibility/universal access depending on the operating system, most likely it will be the latter.check the display area to make sure the grayscale option is not selected.*****try pressing command alt/option control and 8 at the top all togetther, look for the key with the apple this is command the two hold it and the two keys next to it and press 8, i am using an apple pro white keyboard if your using anything other than an apple pro black or white then the keys may be in a slightly differnet order, this is the kb shortcut for the option i mentioned earlier

Try to inspect the connector linking the monitor to pc. see if there are bended pins or probably broken pins. if not try to change the monitor just for testing and see if the problem still there. but if not, that means ur monitor is the problem. also try to remove the video card and reinstall it again to its slot.

What is the error message? The CPUs will not overclock on there own, that requires configuration. Some components when not installed properly with cause the computer to boot to a black screen and the fan to speed up dramatically. I've seen memory sticks and display port cables cause this. Check all your hardware and make sure everything is seated properly.

If the cable is damaged then one of the pins can be bent inside or if it unscrews a solder connection may be undone. see the photo showing color on the left and bw on the right. Also plug everything in turn off everything then turn on the computer and then turn on tv. also try just opposite turn on tv and reboot computer.
