I just built a computer over at a friends house and before I left it was working fine. Now, after bringing it home, both the monitor and TV don't recognize the source and just power off. I am using the RGB PC cable. What could be wrong with it and could I fix it myself? I had my friend build it for me as I am not experienced. It is Windows 7 64 bit with an Nvidia 9800 GT.

I'm not sure on the hookup. It was hooked up to his TV, but I can't hook it up to my TV or other two monitors (all using the same cord). It's an ASUS, core i5 x4.

try these 3 things first.

1: open the side and double check that nothing shook loose in transport.

2: try reseating the video card.

3: Try using a DVI cable if possible to hook up to your monitor instead

I remember transporting an Intel system one time and the CPU heatsink popped loose and caused a no boot situation due to CPU overheating.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)
