Make sure the card is in properly... is the clip at the back in place?

Are you getting any beeps at startup?

It might be your graphics card, then again it might not.

Also try making sure the graphics card is fully seated in it's slot.

Is the whole system switching on OK, and just not the monitor? - or what - fans going? etc etc.

your problem is memory MAYBE, check that you r running at the richt speed eg. 100 or 133 for simms they are in the right bank my abit board refused to start up with 2 sticks removing one all was fine but it had to be in bank 3 insteaD OF 1

Personally i think it is something to do with you mobo myself. Does your mobo have onboard graphics?? If so, take your graphics card out and then load up, if it still doesn't work then it isn't you graphics card. Have you checked all your switches arte in the right place according to the handbook.

I did have a problem like this a few years back and the computer engineer replaced the power supply and the mobo. IT WORKED!! Don't know which one was faulty though

If everything seems to be working - then try another graphics card.
