I am running Windows XP with the lastest updates on an Emachine T2885 with 1 GB ram. In a vain attempt to have my PC recognize a new PCI video card that I was installing, I disabled the monitor setting (control panel, monitor, advance settings). Now, the monitor remains blank so I can't figure out how to fix that setting. Ahhh!

Any quick suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

it can be a multiple of things... first, i download a graphics card once and the screen remained blank, so what i did was i unplugged it restarted it and plugged it back in.. Also, try using another monitor see if u can see anything, then if u can see something through another monitor, than maybe u can enable ur monitor again... but that happened to me along time ago, so i dont remember that well... lol... worth a try

Another monitor might not be such a bad idea, since Windows would recognize it. However, some video cards want you to install some software before you install the card. Have you disabled your onboard video card in the BIOS? (Assuming the original video was onboard . . .) Do you see anything at all when the computer starts? Have you tried removing the card?
