    I am using a Mac Pro a1186 2.66GHz. My screen froze so I force shut down and ever since the screen stays black but the computer turns on. I was told this could be the graphics card. Does anybody have any ideas or how to fix it?

    Probably you have the stock ATI 2600XT? These are known to be faulty and were recalled by Apple. The recall campaign was extended many times, but finally ended in Dec 2012, so you are no longer eligible for a free replacement.

    In any case, if the video card is bad, the fix is to replace it. If you are not certain it is the video card, try to borrow one and swap it temporarily.
