I got a desktop computer from my sister. It's got some age to it but still a great computer. Recently the hard drive crashed on me. I bought a new hard drive however when I installed it to the computer and tried to turn it on I get no video at all. Now the video card is like a plug in one, not built into the motherboard. Their is no video card built in. If I have a new hard drive will that stop the computer from recognizing the video card? If so, how can I install Windows into the hard drive and make it so I can see what I'm doing? I would just take it to a computer shop but I'm kind of on the lower end of the money pool. I'm pretty good with computers but this one is stumping me. Also, I have checked this hard drive with an external plug and play and it works great. And I feel that the video card should be working fine since it did before the hard drive crashed Thank you in advance for the help.
