If that is the case, then how would I tell which port is the right or wrong port? I'm new to all this so sorry if I sound dumb on the subject.

Don't plug the cable into the port near all the USB, network etc ports.

There should be one below that, that one will override the onboard graphic card.

For example...

The onboard is on the vertical plate near all the other connections, below is an internal card which is horizontal, in this case the horizontal one is the one to connect to.

Oh, I have mine plugged into the lower one, the one that is the graphics card put in by the old owner.

Did you try taking out the battery on the motherboard (with no power connected of course) for 30 seconds, and then replace and switch on again?

Also when inside the machine check the graphic card, if recent card there should be power connectors to the graphic card itself, make sure they are connected (into both sockets if there) they should be on the far right of the card itself.

No I haven't tried that yet, mostly because I dont exactly know where that is and I haven't had the time to try.

And the last time I checked it was connected.

Do you have a friend who also has almost the same card? If so borrow the card and place in your box. If your computer works, your card is the problem, if it doesn't work, your problem is somewhere else, and professional help will be the way to go.
