Unfortunately, I have no recollection of this computers specs, but I can try. The motherboard has an AMD 64 2800 and 2GB of DDRAM *matching*. The HD is an old, crappy WD 40GB HD. Windows XP SP2 runs on it. The Graphics card is a 9800 Pro 128meg card. The PS is an antec 450w. The computer has always worked without a problem, till I got the new one *on my previous post*. I had not used the computer for about a month except for a brief time, when I was just checking up on it. I recently was about to give to a friend when I found the problem. I loaded up the computer, but the signal was not being sent to the monitor. The monitor is a SuperScan Elite 751 Hitachi CRT. I removed the card and tried using the onboard MoBo display, and it worked fine. I could not figure anything out so I decided to format and start anew, needing to do so anyways to clean off games and programs that I was not giving my friend. After reinstalling, I tried installing the card and booting up the computer again, resulting in the same outcome. Is my card bad or is there a way to clear the Cmos or something to weed out any problems. Please take note, if there is something I need to physically do to the card to clear anything, it has a Zalman custom fan and heatsink on it, which covers quite a bit of the surface of the card.
