Monitor works with a laptop , I haven't test the video card because it may cause problems in the other PC .
The video card fan is spinning , one thing I have notice is the moment I start the PC when it is connected to a monitor ( have tried with two differ'monitors so far) , it start getting hotter and hotter.When I start the PC with the video card not connected to a monitor I got a 2 medium and then 3 small and then 2 again beeps but the video card is not overheating .

We have other PCs to test cards with and spare cards. Looks like the shop for you.

there's only one thing to do. A new card, should be able to get one for under $40. Good luck.
