RESOLVED WITH HELP OF A FRIEND
(Solution in the bottom for other non-advanced people running this problem)
 
First of, please don't be too advanced, I'm not very good at how a computer works soft-hardware speaking. I just work with it a lot and know specific programs very well.
Try to explain things well because I don't even know what, for example, "VGA" stands for. Anyway
 
I recently got a new PC built specifically for gaming. It worked, so everything started up. However, this brand new pc had worse performances than my 3-year old laptop (what I'm using now to post here).
Now to compare, my new PC had 12 FPS in WoW with all details on their lowest point. In comparison, my laptop (I put my pc on the same resolution as my laptop) had 68 fps on the exact same spot with better details.
 
Now I knew that wasn't right so I started looking about and eventually got to the idea that the drivers were useless on my new pc. So I wanted to swap them around.. However... I needed to uninstall my old drivers first. And as you may have guessed by now, there's no input whatsoever towards my monitor any more. All blank. I tried rebooting it (as millions of sites said whilst trying to find the research from people running into the same problem before) but it doesn't help whatsoever. The pc itself starts up fine still, though.
 
Can any one help me on how I can get my new visual driver installed at least so I can see things on my monitor one more? The starting scene doesn't even show up.
 
Thanks in advance, remember, I don't know much about pc's so don't be too advanced on me
 
yours truly,
Shinela
 
Solution found:
Change the socket of your monitor (possibly with help of an adapter: pic). I got my screen back then. The rest was all some very slow re-installation and happy feelings for me.
This was way easier than I made it be. Bleih :P
