  1. alright so my problem is when i boot up my computer it shows the black screen of death! I did a bunch of different things and nothing seems to work. I tried a different monitor, a different brand new video card, checked the jumpers, cleared the cmos, removed all pci cards and put them back, nothing works. when i boot up the computer it doesn't make a beeping noise like it used to and the keyboard and mouse do not light up at all.

    Video graphics card gone bad, or something has become unplugged, such as a cable, or bent such as a graphics cable socket or plug.
