Re: Monitor HELP!!
ok, it's not hard. And is quick
take off ur side panel. Unscrew you video card from the case(1 screw, it may not be screwed there though, it could just be clamped, and ae sure ur monitor is not plugged into it when u do this) now while gently pulling away from the motherboard holding the gpu, with your other hand, by the pcie slot there should be a little plastic thing that's holding the card in place, move it out of the way and pull the card out. Now line it up and put it back in, and re screw it. And put the side panel back on. Plug in the monitor and see if that fixed the problem. All of which should take less then a minute.
Before you do this you should unplug the power cable from the back of the tower, and click the power button to discharge any remaining electricity. Also before touching the card, place your hand on a metal part of the case with ur feet firmly planted on the ground to minimize the very slight risk of static discharge onto the components. Also you should have your feet on the ground while doing this, and you should not be on carpet.
You don't really have to follow these things to prevent static discharge, ll half the time im in my computer i don't touch the case and am on carpet and don't have the feet on the ground and i have never had a problem, but it's always good to do.
