Please reply back on my pc with a video card problem? I did try the suggestions that you made and the info you asked for

The fan on the power supply and the one on the CPU on the motherboard runs from the time I plug it in. It is not sending anything to the monitor. I did hook it up to another monitor and still nothing. The model # is MFATXSTL KTH 300SE Gateway Serial # is 0026719817 It is an 02 model and it is a windows XP. The only other desktop I have is a Gateway windows 98 and it is a 2000 model. Model # MICRO ATX FMN ESSENTIAL 435C I can't be sure about the 5 in the435C It is half there. SERIAL # 0017666320 I do have this new Lap top that I'm using now. Is there a way I can hook it up to my laptop without hurting it. If I can what do I need to hook it up to it. Can I take the harddrive out of the XP and put it in the 98 and get all the info off of it with no disk to use but I would love to put all the info from the harddrive on some disk's. If it is the video card does it mater what the video card came out of ? I have a lot of extra parts from some IBM's I have a lot of CPU's, Fans and RAM's and many other parts from IBM's but can I use those in any other brands of PC's. If you need any other info please feel free to just let me know. Oh yea can a PC run without a video card? Can I take it out and see if it will boot up then without the card in it ? Are there any Instrutabales that will explain exactly how to do this step by step with pic's. If there are I can set my laptop right beside it and go at it or does anyone know of any web sites that will show it for free. I have searched the web but I couldn't find anything without paying a couple hundred dollars which I very much don't have lol. Does anyone know of any books or websites that have like the best top 10 or 20 tips to try on a broken PC that is not a scam and is right by all of you pro's would agree with. I want to learn all of this that I can but I cannot afford a bunch of books or to pay for a lot of websites. I would love to find a place that someone has a lot of the books I need and that they don't need anymore like a good rummage sale. Thank you to all who replys. This means a lot to me. madrasi_63@yahoo.com
