Well I was looking at a friends computer to give advice on what to upgrade. However when I turned the computer back on the monitor would not detect a signal. Considering I didn't touch the monitor its doubtful that the cable or monitor spontaneously died.

has all the specs.

The video card was upgraded -BFG GTX260
Nothing is OCed
THe integrated card may have been disabled because plugging the monitor into that did not yield a signal either.

I dont have any access to spare parts (to test the MB or graphics card) where I am but I was wondering if anyone could shed some light.

I have reseated the GPU and have checked all the cables. Im looking for a dvi suited monitor. As for the power supply its been upgraded to a 650W.

The GPU turns on and warms up (the actual chipset is covered), meaning it is seated and powered correctly.

Could this actually be a static charge? If so can I look for physical signs? Why would the integrated chip output not work as well?
