Try reseating your memory and cards (removed them then reinsert them). Do the fans come on when you turn the computer on?

It sounds like you have a bad graphics card. Can you try it in another computer to verify.

Radeon 7000, hrrrmmm. That card comes in AGx2/4 and just standerd PCI. If you're using AGP I could reccomend a card such as Asus GeForce MX 4000 or if you're looking for a PCI card you could get something like this Diamond Stealth S80 Radeon 9200se. Both should help your computer in basic things such as movies and flash animations.

I am still in love with my P-III with a PCI 64MB nVidia MX 400. I have heard very good things about the 7000 series nVidia cards, but cannot speak from experience. That is what I am looking at for the computer I am going to build my daughter for Christmas.
