    does this mean the graphics card is history? because I have made sure everything is plugged in and it is, i did look at the cable (the blue one with screws in, dont know the name of it) and there is only 14 pins in it and there is supposed to be 15. I tried a differnt computer monitor with a differnt cable and still no signal input.

    Do you think that the pin from the other cable may of gone through the computer and maybe peirced the graphics card?

    Please help

    if you've pulled the CMOS battery and left the computer unplugged for a while, then hooked it back up and tried different monitors with different cables and had no luck, then from my experience i'd say your graphics card is shot. it might have shorted or anything else.

    does your computer post, as in, you hear a beep shortly after you turn it on? if not, your motherboard might be gone, too.
