Computer is broken
I had this computer for over a year now and everything was working fine until i got this new monitor by DELL the W1700 HDTV monitor. When i plugged in the monitor and started my computer, the computer did not start up with the monitor and I didn't even hear the windows xp sound go off in the start up. So, I manually turned off the computer and unplugged the monitor cables and replugged them and started it up again, but still did not work. Then I plugged in my old monitor and now even my old monitor does not work either. I dont know much about computers. I do not know what wrong with my computer because its been working fine for a year now. Please help.

You might have losened something when you disconnected your old monitor cable. Your video card might not be seated fully. They sometimes wobble. You're going to have to get someone to open the case and make sure everything is tight. Or you can do this yourself too. Make sure you pull the power plug first!
