hey,
today when i was installing a usb2.0 card on my brothers pc, on first restart the machine powered up fine, HDD span up etc, no error beeps. but the monitor only showed a blank screen.
i know the monitor is plugged in etc, because otherwise it dislays a "no input signal" message, however all i get is a completely blank screen. any ideas? it is a pretty old pc so my first bet would be the gfx card just giving up. although any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

yeah that was the first thing i tried, also cleared CMOS, checked all the jumpers, took the card out and blew the slot incase it was dusty:rolleyes: .

Yeah, its always good to have an extra cheap videocard laying around... I got two just in case.. I wish i had a couple of processors though too.. even though they rarely ever fail.
