New to this forum but not new to computers. Ok here is my little problem. I have a friend that was given a computer it is a little newer and better in most regards, so we will call that computer A. The computer she had been using was fairly new also but not as good as computer A, so we will call her computer B.
So I thought and I have done this a ton of times with no problems, I would take the HD out of computer B and put it in computer A, sounds simple enough. Ok so I did that and now computer A will not bring up the Monitor/video, it boots up and starts to go to the desktop and a little windown pops up saying no video. By the way both computers are running Win 7. So just to be doing all the simple things I canged the monitor cable, no change. I rebooted it serveral times, no change.
I can give more detail if needed. I have cloned HD's and did swaps liike this a lot of times this is the first time I have this no video. So I am looking for some one that might have done this before and had a video problem. I know you can do swaps likes this tons of times with no problems but there is always the chance this might happen. So is there a way of fixing this with out reinstalling Win 7.?
