Sudden blank Screen

  noobtype 18:27 20 Feb 11

My PC suddenly went totally blank on both my monitors. The PC is still on but the screen is black. I checked the monitors on another PC and they work fine. I restarted a few times and it is the same. It seems to be on, just can't see anything.
Would this be the graphics card? It's onboard graphics. But if the graphics card fails shouldn't it go to VGA?

"if the graphics card fails shouldn't it go to VGA?"


As its on board graphics chip failure then looks as if you may have to fit a new graphics card and hope it auto changes to the new card.

Might it be anything else?
