Im trying to install an ATI x1300 video card. I removed the old video
card and put the new one in its place and when i turn on my PC it
doesnt do anything. The fans and lights are on but the monitor stays
blank and you cant do anything. My computer meets the graphics card

Howdy flupox14-ga,

Make sure you have the drivers for your old video card before you try the
following please.

- Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, System
- Go to Hardware, Device Manager
- Select Display Adapters, then "right click" on your current video card
- Click on Uninstall

Once the uninstall is done, go through the power down of your computer.

Unplug the computer, install the new video card, and see if that makes a
difference.  If the old card is a PCI card and the new is an AGP card,
you might have to activate the AGP slot through your BIOS settings.

Report your results back here if you would, please.  Thanks!

Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher
