I've recently purchased an ATI Radeon 4850, and the Over Temp Protect LED lights up, and nothing is displayed on the monitor. When I try to hook my monitor up to the ports on the motherboard I also receive a blank screen.
The monitor is functional, and 'wakes up' from standby mode directly after it is connected to any port.
The display worked once when I used an old PNY Geforce 210 card but has not worked after that.
Anyone know what to do?

RMA the card-its likely dysfunctional. They were hot running cards to begin with-if its saying its overheating then its overheating, you can mess with aftermarket cooling and whatnot, but on a card that old its really not worth it, if you can return it I would.
