I installed a secondary hard drive to my pc. Added it to one of the empty bays connected all the cables. Blew the dust out while I had it opened, closed it up, reconnected everything. Went to turn it on and I get lights, hear the fan see the hard drive light, but the monitor says no signal. So I check all connections and try again...same results. So I remove the new hard drive check everything...still no boot up. Help Please.

I would suggest reseating the memory, and video card.

Did you check the monitor cable as well?

Do you have a secondary monitor that's normally turned off? Had that happen to me - during an SSD upgrade the PC decided to make a monitor I never turn on the primary and turned of extended display for no apparent reason. Was hard for a slow kid like me to figure out.

Thank you! I was laughing at myself all morning...thinking it was something more complex.
