I do not have a 945-X but the 915-X looks just like it. I seem to have a problem with my video card. When I plug it into a monitor and boot it up, the light turns on, I hear the fan spin, but I cannot get video on the monitor. Furthermore, whenever I try to insert a disk into the machine, it does not accept it. Can anyone help me? I hear the HDD spinning, and everything seems to check out.

Hello friend, Please i think you card is not acceptable by the system, or have you checked another card on the system to see if it displays the same thing. And when you remove the card the system boots normal without any error. So check on the card make a change on it.
Hello janicezavitz, this is usually a driver problem: your computer and the video card does not work properly (or the wrong software driver is being used for the video card or maybe the refresh rate is out of range for the monitor). you can try to plug in a different monitor swap the video card into another pc or try a new one make sure the correct software driver is being used for the video card.
or try this: 1. Restart your PC and Boot into safe mode 2. right click on my computer. 3. Go to device manager 4. uninstall your video card (display adapter). Be sure to note the type of video card you have!!. 5. restart your PC again and now start up normally 4. adjust your desktop resolution (800x600 or 1024x768 etc) The lines should now go away .If not it might be your display or monitor problem. 5. and if the lines are gone, you should download and install the latest drivers
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that spark may have damaged your card. It takes very little voltage to damage out video cards and most times static sparks can spike pass 400 volts! I would try to replace the card with a new one and ground yourself before plugging in the hdmi.
If the system has integrated video with a DVI expansion card, you can use two monitors.
If the system has a PCI-E dual head video card (2 video connections on the video expansion card) then you can use 2 monitors.
If the system has a single head PCI-E video card (ATI HD2400) with a single DVI port, then that card disables the on-board VGA port.
So first you have to find out what the hardware configuration actually is for the Video Card. Then we can look at the monitors and how they are connected.
Post back with details on the video card and the monitors you are trying to connect if you need further information.
you need a new video card. it is powering down becuase it is not reciving any signal from you computer. if you are useing onboard video (vga) get a pci video card if you are useing a pci card try puting it in a dfrent slot.
Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.
There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some.
1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!)
if not then
2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try
Well if that doesn't work, tell me more!
Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted.
Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.
