Black screen at startup?

I have an Win 7 64 bit HP pavilion P6 series desktop when I start the computer it goes to a black screen but when I remove the graphics card HD 7450? Then reinstall it,the computer will startup? Ive changed the 2 memory sticks to another 2 channels and then changed them out for just a single 4GB stick but that made no difference? Its just the graphics card it seems! would a bad capacitor on the card cause anything like this or could there be something else?

Hi,
Most likely power failure to the card or the card it's self :/
We don't know the exact model/ brand card or if it has additional power lines to it
If it doesn't it could be the PCI/-E slot there's no telling without another card to test it with ?

Take a picture with everything connected

I was having trouble with my wireless router at the same time but I didn't relate them to each other until I recapped and replaced the crystal resonator in the router and Bingo everything came good? I haven't had any trouble since.Oh and I replaced the memory sticks as well so it could've been any of those things?
