i have a generic 15" TFT flat panel LCD moitor it says GEM on it, i guess thats the brand but i've never heard of it. :q
I'm making a computer out of older components that have been replaced in my computer and this new computer has this:
Matrox Millenium2 graphics card [yeah i know its very old]
512 mb Elixer RAM
60 GIG Western Digital Harddrive
350watt power supply
I know that the proccessor is still good because i just recently upgraded the one on my computer, same with the motherboard. The RAM is good, because i just swap the RAM in my computer for in for it [im 14 i can't afford everything!
]. The harddrive is fine, checked it as a slave in mine. and the powersupply I've had for a while, but fans spin so I know that it works [yes it has enough watts for the board]. The graphics card should be fine, I used it up till last christmas [when i got my ti4600, YAY].
I used the flat panel up 'till about a month ago when I got a CRT monitor.
So finally my problem...
I get no signal on the monitor, I try it on my computer and at everything goes smoothly until right after the windows 2k boot screen, BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. The blue screen flashes too quickly to read before the computer reboots.
I've tried to clear the CMOS data but that didn't work. I've also tried different PCI slots for the card and made sure that it is in securly. The other computers card is obviously in fine because I use it everyday.
The computer with the above listed components has a completely blank harddrive so if that has anything to do with it.?
Sorry for making it so long winded...
