    It's possible you video card became unseated from the slot. Only way to really tell, is to crack the case open.

    Or, your monitor might be hosed.

    i have to agree with shakedown its a common problem for the video card to come loose, happenerd to me on a brand new puter the card came loose during shipping, not to worry its an easy fix turn everything off and unplug it than take the case off pop the card out and reseat it just be careful not to bend any pins, before you put the case on turn everything back on and see if it works if not its possible your card took a crap and if thats the case its a great time to upgrade the card.......... :cool:
