My son Has an Advent PC P4 2.8 XP home. It came with a 128mem graphics card He bought a new card Nvidia with 256 memory for better gaming. When we installed it the screen stayed blank. It is a TFT monitor with an odd shaped (that's the best I can do) connection at one end and an ordinary video adapter at the other which We plugged into the PC. I know the card is good because we tried it on my PC. Anyone please tell me what is wrong?
PaulB2005.Just noticed the light on the monitor glows orange, according to the manual this is power off, yet the fan on the graphics card is spinning, so it is obviously power off to the monitor only. Could it be the cable.?
The old card works fine. We are using it now. Always used this cable. Can only go one way round. connectors on the TFT are this oddly shaped one only, both an ordinary adapter and this odd shaped one on the card
Thank you all so much for your help. Stupid error I'm afraid. After installing the new card the pins to the connector on the monitor worked loose (hadn't tightened them). Now working perfectly. Once again thank you. I apologise for my error.
