Computer doesn't display on monitor?

My computer just stopped working, powers on but no image on the monitor. Basically my computer use to freeze up during gaming then I'd had to hold down the power button and reset the computer.

Monitor is a old dell 22 inch monitor light turns green when graphics card is pulled out, when graphics card is pulled in the monitor light stays yellow which is standby.

Works fine I need to find the issue with the system freezing do you know of a good temp monitor for Nvidia cards? Basically something that checks the card for any issues.

Heck, any pc software that checks the hardware please post a couple links.

Some hardware tests to run.


Hard drive(s)test(s):
Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.
7 Free Hard Drive Testing Software Tools

RAM (memory) test:
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+


MSI After Burner is what many people use for their GPU adjustments. MSI Afterburner
