Windows 7: Graphics Card Problem

I don't have an anti-static wrist strap but my whole house is wooden pretty much and I touch the steel on my case. Some progress I guess is that my graphics card isn't going ballistic each time I start going normal speed however there is still no image on the monitor and also my CPU fan doesn't seem to be working now.

If you now suspect your CPU, you need to take your laptop in for a checkup, unless you feel inclined to carry out a self-repair, but before you start you need to establish what the problem is.

I'd definitely go for the motherboard so it's decision time. Get it checked out or try and repair it yourself - it's your call.

Well I don't really know which part to suspect because a few hours ago before I cleaned it, it worked fine but now all the fans (aside from CPU fan) and hard drive start up but nothing happens on the screen of the monitor.

Also there is no beep from the motherboard when I start it... Could this mean the motherboard is dead?

Yes, it could be.

You really need go get it checked out by your local repairer rather than spend money when you're not sure what the problem is.

However, with no CPU and no sign of life from the motherboard that's the first thing you need to investigate.

Well I already sent a request to a local computer tech group... So see what happens, one question if the motherboard is indeed dead. Does that mean I will need to reinstall windows ?

Not necessarily if the HDD is still good and is a retail copy unless the its like a OEM OS that's bound to the motherboard which would mean it would only work with the same replacement of a motherboard from the same manufacture.

Besides the DVI connection, your motherboard will have a VGA connection? Connect a cable with VGA connectors from the motherboard to the monitor.

Then reboot the system with ghapics card removed. The system will now switch to default VGA. At which you should now have video.

If there is no video you may have a bad motherboard, as Seavixen32 suggested.

There is no VGA adapter on the back of my motherboard, or from what I can see.
