Im stumped

  1. I just got a new computer from and when it gets to my house I try to hook it up to a monitor, but it doesn’t work. So I try another one, and it doesn’t work either. Then I try to set it up with a LCD TV with the S-vid cable, but surprise, it doesn’t work. But all of the monitors work when I hook them up to my other computer, and the new computer looks like its turning on. The fans go on, it doesn’t make any weird noise, the drives open, but it just doesn’t seem to work with any monitor.

    Imp not exactly computer savvy and I really have no idea what’s wrong with it, if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks.

    then you have an issue with the graphics card. If you can't get it to even show a POST display.

    I suggest you return it.
