(vga) monitor displays no signal

I was updating my NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 from dell.com, my video card is integrated on MoBo. After I installed new driver I restarted PC and now my monitor displays no signal. I have no idea on how to fix this problem. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions anyone has. Thank You

Have you tried repeatedly tapping F8 as soon as you turn the computer on and getting into Safe Mode?

Hmmm, could be the cord. Try plugging in/tightening the cords; both in your monitor and in your PC. If that doesn't work, repeatedly tap F8 as you start up your computer and go into Safe Mode.

Have you ever reset a BIOS before? You might try that. If you're not sure what to do, ask.

What slots are available on the motherboard? Do you have an old PCI video card you could throw in there?

Keep in mind that you'll probably have to go back in and change a few settings (like date and time) if this works. Dell's do not usually have too many options to worry about, though.

You're using the onboard Graphics though, right? If you have both in the computer, try switching the monitor cable to the other connector.

No signal to display!!!! This what i have tried so far.

After I updated my onboard graphics card and rebooted PC my monitor displayed no signal. I've tried to reboot to safemode but haven't had any luck. I have removed my RAM sticks and turned power on to check MOBO it beeps, from what I have read online that means it is Okay. I got a new PCIE Graphics Card and installed it but still no signal. I am getting ready to go buy new CMOS battey and try that. ClueLess on the JUMPER PINS not sure which ones are 1 2 3 if you place jumper on the pins top pin and bottom pin or place it on top row the first to pins? Also, not even sure how they was placed in the beginning? I removed them a few days ago before joining here tring to reset everything? I am confused and probably confusing too!
