So I just recently started having trouble with my monitor not receiving a signal from my computer. It would also shut off within 5-20 seconds of starting it. I noticed the fan on my video card was not working so I swapped the video card out with my friends very low end card. With his card I am still not getting a signal to the monitor but my computer stays on. Any ideas?

Did you try different monitor, different cable, or did you try THIS monitor with another computer?

I have tried a different monitor and cable and the same thing occurs which makes sense since my comp is shutting off with my video card. I am thinking either the PSU or an overheating problem?

I also want to add just in case it helps, when using my video card and my computer shuts off after those 5-20 seconds, I have to flip the on/off swith on the PSU in order to be able to start my computer up again.
