Default monitor wont turn on

Im not to good with the architecture of a computer, I only took 1 class in it. So can someone help me?

When I turn on my computer the monitor comes on for a second and then turn right off, I tried hooking up a monitor I know works..same thing happens. I got a new video card...same thing. What else could it be?

Well you've tried the obvious.

Try reseating the ram, see if that helps.

It's worth a shot.

I've seen ram do some weird stuff.
