Monitor went blank other than to say "NO SIGNAL".  Restarted computer, and still no signal.  No idea what it is.  New cord between PC & monitor.  May be a motherboard, but likely the video card?  I'll need to plug in another monitor to check it out.  Any suggestions as to what to try?

  On laptop at the moment.

Yep, video card for sure.  I didn't know the card had a cooling fan, so cleaned everything up & reinstalled tthe card.  Fan doesn't even run.

Some card do have a fan and others don't.  I think your higher end card tend to have the fans to keep them cool.  Heat is the enemy of electronic's.

Found a card that matches on ebay, just under $20 delivered.  Brand new, pulled from new computer. Should be here Thursday or Friday.  

Removed from New computer first day and stored away... Clean!

This laptop is ok, but I'm slower, plus smaller screen to read.  Then there's Teresa wanting her laptop back after a while!  :smilewink:

WooHoo....back on my PC with 22" screen!  Video board came in mail today and works perfectly!  Great to be back on the big screen!  I figured the card was bad, but great getting the phone verification from Wildbill!  Thankee!  Great having computer guru's to help!
