Default graphic's card not working

one of my computers has a ati radeon 9800 pro in it, I have a vga silencer artic cooler on it, recently when i went to turn on my computer nothing showed up on it. The screen remains blank and the power light on the moniter flashes, i put in a older nvidia card i had and it works with that so i ruled out the motherboard, any idea's?

Have you tried the "broken" card in another computer? If it still doesn't come up with anything then I agree with baronvongogo and say that it's dead I'm afraid and time to buy a new one. If it does work in another computer please post back.

true the only reason i said it was most likely dead was due to the fact he did try another card in that pc which worked. And if the card once worked but now doesn't.....then its most likely bad news.

But true try it in another pc just to test.
