The best to test tell which one is fried would be to put the video card into another machine. But it sounds like the card is probably shot.

I say the DVD drive screwed the Video Card over. Try this card in another PC, if it does not work, then I believe that your card is nice n crispy. Destroy it and post pics here :)

firstly trash the DVD drive... hope no nice cd got destroyed in it... (make sure u check for that though... i have bad expeirence of losing a backup cd full of work like that)

Then... firstly... go to rear of machine.. take out monitor cable... look at it... then put it back in... see if it boots... if not...

pull out monitor cable... take out gfx card.. try in another machine... if it works... get another gfx card stick it into the machine which had the fried dvd drive...

something outta that lot gotta 'not work' else your monitor is screwed :/
