Windows 7: iRush Pro Monitor Problem

I am not worried about getting inside the case, just I don't even actually know what the GFX card is and how I can troubleshoot it.

This looks simplier to do than troubleshooting the GFX card, googling my problem came up with threads saying the GFX card is actually faulty.

As for troubleshooting, have you read the posts in this thread? Something about the proper connection point for a cable and you stating you might post a picture?

How in the world could a Google search show that YOUR particular graphics card is defective?

Hmmm.....you say "I don't even actually know what the GFX card is" and then state "googling my problem came up with threads saying the GFX card is actually faulty". It seems you have googled something you can't identify. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

You don't seem to have any interest in fixing a possible problem. Not a good sign for a would-be PC skinner.

Exchange for a Dell. If it gives you the least trouble, exchange for a Zoostrom. If that gives you................

I have gathered the pictures.

Look at attatched files:

I plugged the monitor in the Blue VGA Port.

I didn't google about the specific graphics card, I googled something like "No signal new pc" and there were comments saying the graphics card may be faulty etc.

The blue VGA port is useless to you. That would be the proper connection if you were using on-processor graphics. You can't use on-processor graphics.

You must use the video card. It is sitting in one of your 7 slots and has the 2 red connectors shown in your pics.

You need a cable that will attach to one of those red connectors.

If you don't have one, get one.

Which red port? I don't know. Try one and if you get no signal, try the other.

The "loose" thing appears to be a slot cover that may have been dislodged during shipping and knocked inside the case. It is a simple 5 minute job to take off the case cover and put it back in place. Their purpose is to keep out dust. Other than that, it is harmless.

There is nothing to troubleshooot but the user.

So because you don't know the difference between the onboard video connectors and the video card (which is the two red DVI ports by the way), you're going to return a likely perfectly good computer for no reason. That is why you're not getting any signal to the monitor. You should have got a DVI to VGA adapter with the computer (because the video card DID come with one), whether Novatech sent you one or not is another story. Try connecting to the video card instead of the onboard video (which is disabled in the bios due to a video card being installed), and it will work.

If your monitor doesn't have a DVI port on it and you didn't get the adapter with the computer, go out and get one. Be a lot better doing that than returning and looking foolish after they tell you in person what the "problem: was.

What is the cable that can connect to the red connectors and my monitor, is it expensive?

And is there any tutorial on how to fix this properly.

I think my mum is convinced it is a faulty PC and don't want to pay more money for something that is broken and cannot be fixed anyway.

A DVI cable. And I already explained above what you need if your monitor doesn't have a DVI port on it.

So can I just get this one:
StarTech.com 1.8 m DVI cable 18 pin digital DVI (Single-Link) - male

Plug it inside the red port and then plug it inside my monitor?

If your monitor has a DVI port, yes.

Fix what?

You have no evidence anything is broken.

If you are nonetheless convinced on faith alone without any evidence that it is broken, then by all means don't get a proper cable and return it all immediately if not sooner.
