There are two possibilities:
1. Graphics card, although working, only does so at low res so it's probably faulty and needs replacing. This is my 'best' guess.
2. I recently had the same symptom -- no video signal -- even after fitting a spare card. baffled me completely. I took system box in to a local
friends PC shop and went back 2 hours later. It was working fine now, but all he did was remove all removable components (cards, drives, ram) and put them back. And it worked. No new parts at all. Go figure that one out.
3. Could be the graphics-driver needs updating but I doubt it if it was working okay and you've re-installed it. So probably not that.
I don't know whether or not it's a 'high end' (ie expensive) card but I would buy a cheap one first just to establish if the existing card is faulty.
If the new cheap one works you can then confidently buy a better one if you so wish, keeping the cheap one as an emergency spare, and you won't have wasted a large sum of money.
