I tried to remove my video card (NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT) because I want to transfer it to my new system. The problem is I forgot to remove the drivers and softwares of the card in my computer and now I can't boot it (but the computer powers on, only no display)

Here are my pc specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400
BIOSTAR G31D-M7
NVIDIA GEFORCE 9400 GT
2GB DDR2 RAM
256 HDD
Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Thank you in advance! :)

Try connecting the display to the motherboard graphics.
If that works you should be able to enable PCIe video in the BIOS

I already did that and removed the video card but still no display. I can't even enter bios screen. Anyway, thanks for answering.

Have you tried removing your RAM to ensure there's a beep code.
This way we know the motherboard is functioning.

There's a long beep when I removed the RAM. So I guess the motherboard is not the problem?

Motherboard should not be the problem.
Try removing video card. Then remove CMOS coin battery.
Leave out for a good minute.
Put your battery back in.
Boot up your computer without the video card still.
You should see something on the screen.

Okay, I followed your directions and powered the pc on but still no display. (I removed the battery and leaved it out at least five minutes to be sure.)
