Hi, I recently had my computer power supply replaced. And the guy who did it said he booted the computer up and it worked fine. When I tried to turn it on when I got home, the CPU worked, but the Video did not. I'd been using onboard video, so I figured I could just get a new video card and correct the problem. That ran me into another problem. In order to install this video card, shouldn't I need some type of display to work with? I'm at a loss and I don't know what to do. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just installing the card and plugging the monitor in should give you a basic display to work with until you can install the card's drivers. If for some reason it's not working that way, make sure the video card is seated properly and check to make sure the monitor is good. Otherwise it shouldn't be a problem.
