When I start the PC everything seems to satrt up as usual except I get a message on the monitor screen saying No Video Input. I have checked all the cables inside the PC & taken out & reseated the Graphic card. There were to cards in the PCI slots, how can I find out which is the Graphic card & how can I test it to see if is working. I was told it might have been the PSU so I put a new one in, but it displayed the same message.
Thanks Mac

"There were to cards in the PCI slots, how can I find out which is the Graphic card & how can I test it to see if is working."

Are you saying that you have two(2)PCI-e display card installed?

I meant to say there are two cards in the PCI slots, the slots are white. I dont know how to find out which is the graphic card, as they are different shapes. One is rectangular & the other is L shaped. I dont know much about PC's, but if I could find out where the problam card is I can fit the card myself, as money is a bit tight these day & it costs about £ 60 for a repairman to have a look plus parts.
