Default Video Card not working!!!!

I got a Radeon X1600 and am having trouble getting it to work. I put it into what i'm sure is the pci express slot but when i start up my computer i don't get a signal to my monitor. I have the dvi cable plugged into my monitor and my new video card. And when i start my computer i notice my fan on my video card isn't even running. What am i doing wrong?!

My motherboard is a radeon xpress 200 which i'm pretty sure supports PCI-E X16

radeon xpress 200 is not a motherboard, its videocard.

I'm not to sure about yours, but newer video cards might need to have a direct supply of power from the psu.

If you have integrate graphics, you might need to disable it from the bios.

Default Re:


...a chipset really.

What motherboard do you have?

Also, try resetting your BIOS.

Smile not properly slotted

maybe your video card is not properly slotted into your motherboard.
