Answers :

It is simpe to figure out it's the one with the cable connected to the moniter follow it to your computer and look at the plug on the moniter and you will know which one to remove and reinstall. most likely the card came loose from a kick of the foot.
Could be a driver issue too. Please reinstall the driver of the Video Card. Check for the video card which is seated perpendicular to the Motherboard, may be you can remove and re-fix it.
