I started having issues with my monitor not powering up with computer about 6-8 months ago and the usual slap on the side of tower seemed to work fine. I took the side panel off at one point of my HP Pavillion 360N and checked conectors but all seemed fine. Well the slapping doesnt work any longer. The monitor works fine plugged in to another unti so it isnt the monitor itself. so???

It doesn't plug into or work off of a PCI or slot card just plugs into the wall which power supply there is fine but nothing coming out of unit to display on monitor. Would this be the connection where the pins screws in? If so, how the h___ do you go about replacing it? I have tried using another monitor but it is the display not coming out but I dont see any per say video card in the mother board. Not all to compu savy here but a little.

Tried looking at HPs web Site but they only really talk about cards and I have no video card atleast none in which I can see with covers all off and all exposed.

I am at the point now where I have tower disasemblled and trying to remove the connection from the back to ah....... replace it I guess.

Make any since to anyone? All help much appriciated.

I have another HP tower (HP Compaq dx2300) I was hoping to just swap them out if possible but I cant seem to even get either of them out and not feeling as if it is going to be so easy of a task as I thought.

It looks to me like on-board video chip is malfunctioning.
You may need to buy real video card.
There are rather inexpensive.

Is there anyway to check it out? Guess it'd be damn near impossible if I cant get it to power up. I can put the Hard Drive i a different computer and boot it I am hoping anyway, would there be a log file there or something to lead me in the right direction. Can a on board chip be swapped out or is it soldered to board?

Thanks for your insight. I just hate to take it to a computer shop and pay a 100 bucks that could be applied towards the card. An deeper hints about trouble shootin?

Judging from your well performed testing (this monitor on another computer works; different monitor on this computer doesn't work), I see no other possible culprit, but dead video chip.
You don't have bring your computer anywhere.
Anyone can install video card.
It's a matter of buying it (you can get a good card well below 50 bucks), opening computer's case, putting the card in and installing a driver form provided CD.

According to this: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07311&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&lang=en&key=null&product=77410 you have 3 PCI slots available, where you put your video card.
You can see them here:

The high performance cards are costly, but you can get a decent basic video card relatively cheap:

EVGA GeForce 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 PCIe w/Dual DVI - $49.99 at Tiger Direct.
