Default no color on moniter?

i have an older computer with a gforce 2 video card in it. i have never had this happen to me before but there is only black and white that comes up on it when you start up. i have tried to reistall the drivers from the mobo cd and the video card cd but nothing seems to be working. this all happened when i used the jp5 setting jumpers on my mobo to reset the cmos data.
anyone have anything that they can recommend that may work besides buying a new video card.

thanks for any help

See if ya can get a newer Driver from the Manufacturer for the Video Card or maybe try rolling back to an older driver via the device manager. I had a friend with this problem & it turned out to be the Monitor. I'm not saying that's your problem though, Start with the easiest stuff first. Let us know Dude.
