I have an older Dell Dimension 8200... and I went to log in after work to check my home email and noticed that my monitor wouldn't come on. It was powered, but no screen/picture. So I hard booted and still nothing. All seemed to be well, but no picture. I had this problem one time about 5 months back when we moved and was told to remove the video card and blow out all the dust and then plug it back in... and Walahhhh... the PC worked. I tried doing that same thing last night and nothing. I also noticed that the cooling fan on the video card was very hard to spin by hand (it had some dust/dirt on it) and I'm not sure if this is normal. I also installed everything and turned my PC back on while the box was open so I could see if the fan was working or not. It didn't spin or make any noise (that I could hear). Is this normal? I would think it's toasted. I've had this PC about ~ 4 years or so... not new by any means. Is this normal? Also, any recommendations for a decent replacement card, that won't break the bank? Most of my home PC use is used for surfing the net, watching funny video clips and doing some spreadsheets and home banking. Not a huge gammer. Thanks.
