Hi. First, I am going to say I am not very computer savvy..but I want to give this a try. I have a HP A1223W desktop. I beleive the video card is out. The monitor goes to sleep as soon as I turn on my computer. I have hooked up another monitor and same thing. I have hooked my monitor up to another computer and it works just fine. I was going to try to replace the video card, and I went to the HP site for instructions on how to do it. The thing is, there is no video card where they say there should be one. There is the modem and then nothing in the other slot. I am guessing that that video card is intergrated with the mother board..so I have no idea what to do from here. I don't really care about saving the computer, all I want off of it is my pictures I had so stupidly not backed up. If I can save the computer I would love that..but the priority are my pictures. Is there a way to fix this without costing an arm and a leg? If not, can I take my hard drive out and get my pics off of it somehow? Thanks for any answers!
