When it rains it pours

I just reinstalled XP yesterday and started to add my aol browser and broadband setup...all went well. This morning I added my tv tuner card cause i removed it during installation and I booted up my system and all i got was no vga. My computer was on, i checked the power cord on both ends of my tv monitor..I also have hdtv on this monitor and naturally talking about a desktop. I removed all cables, opened the case and checked that all cables are secured. Still no vga. I can't even get the post readings..but then why would I if there is no connection of the vga. Has anyone any ideas to get it to boot?
