So I was dusting my old PC and I removed the video card (Geforce Ti4200) to give the fan a little compressed air spray. Well, I plugged it back in and presto, I am rewarded with no display at all, although the fan still works. I do recall slipping my hand a bit on the gold bottom, but that's about it. Any ideas? I'd love to use this as an excuse to go out and get a new card, but I'd be even happier to save a few bucks by figuring out what's wrong with this.
Also, the card is plugged in all the way and I've repeadetly plugged and unplugged it from the AGP slot. I also tried using another video card (Voodoo 2) and I actually got a display, although the card stopped working after that.
So, I am either giving these video cards AIDS, or the AGP slot is broken, which would be extremely odd.
Thanks in advance.
