I opened my computer to remove the cassette drive and after i did i put everything back, turned the computer on and i got nothing to the monitor. Now i know its not the monitor because i hooked it up to my other computer and it worked fine. So i opened it back up and checked all the connections they seemed fine. Any advice on what it could be?

1. maybe the cord in to the back of the monitor was loose and moving it to try on another pc moved it back into place. or the cable to the video card loosened up. did you try it again on the pc it belongs with?

if that doesn't do it then

2. next i would take out the video card blow out the dust as long as the card is out and reseat it

hopefully thats all it is
