Before this happen i was trying to install a new hardware to my computer manually, but i didn't know what to do but i did know where to put it. After I got the hardware in the computer wouldn't turn on, and when I pulled it out the computer turn on. I kept on missing with it for a while until it couldn't turn on no more until I figured it out last 3-4 weeks later or a month. But right after that the monitor won't actually turn on. It'll say "No signal". So I thought because 2 of the needle (i guess that's what you call it) were missing until my brother told that those 2 were missing when we installed it. It stilled worked before I missed with it. Now, I have a monitor that won't receive a signal and a computer that won't turn off when started. What can I do? But then i guess the reason the monitor isn't getting no signal is because their something wrong with my tower. So what can i do to fix the problem. PLEASE!!!

I recommend you to do a clear CMOS to reset the bios. If you don't know how to do it read your motherboard manual.
Probably the new hardware you installed causes an incompatibility with your actual bios configuration.

Have you tried starting the Machine in Safe Mode?

Tap the F8 key during the boot up to access the Advanced Boot Options screen. Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and press Enter.

Does the machine start this way?

Wireless cards may sometimes cause an interference with your video card, if you can put your card as far away (PCI slots) to your Video card as possible and hopes that helps.

No Mr.Wannabe1. i tried installing a linksys wireless internet card into the tower. Now it won't turn off, and i think it loads a long long time non-stop and that i can't turn off.
