so i recently vacuumed all the dust out of my computer and cleaned a few parts with alcohol and q-tips. well after that a couple days later it shut down automatically and has not been putting video out put to the monitor. i know the monitor works cuz i plugged it into my laptop. all the fans work but when i turn it on the run very loudly and really high. also the video card is connected to the motherboard. i don't know what to do I've tried every thing.

The alcohol probably shorted something out. You have to wait until the alcohol is totally dry before turning things on again.

Also, the inside of a computer is static-electricity sensitive. A $100 chip can be ruined instantly by a small static discharge.

Try a new video card.

Dont try a new card first, try the same card in another computer and if it aint working then try a new card. Make sure you have placed the fans nicely and properly.
