Using onboard graphics for the mean time? Hmm, can you get access to your BIOS?

You don't know how to get the 8800GTS out? So your monitor doesn't get any display at all? Meaning it doesn't get power, or turn on?

Have you tried checking if you connected the DVI cable tightly?

ok hmm.. using the nvidia driver . temps 56 C idle bus speeds gpu core 513.000 gpu memory 792.000 hmm

Fan speeds 675rpms idle

1.Is 56 C to hot for idle ?
2.Are the gpu speeds wrong or does it change when it gets into full load cause i know its ment to have 1600mhz memory clock
3.Are the fan speeds correct or again does it change to the gpu workload ?
