Do you have a fan on your video card and is it running?
Check that the card is seated properly in the AGP slot.
• Ensure that the monitor cable is securely fastened to
the card’s monitor connector.
• Make sure that the monitor and computer are plugged
in and receiving power.
• Disable any built-in graphics capabilities
on your motherboard. For more information, consult
your computer’s manual or manufacturer. (NOTE:
Some manufacturers do not allow the built-in graphics
to be disabled or to become the secondary display.)
• If you have problems during bootup, start your
computer in Safe Mode. Hold the CTRL key until the
Microsoft® Windows® Startup Menu appears on the
screen. Then select the number for Safe Mode, and
press Enter. (You can also use F8 to bring up the
Microsoft® Windows® Startup Menu.) In Safe Mode,
go to the Device Manager and remove all duplicate
display adapter and monitor entries if you are only
using one graphics card.
