I bought a Radeon X1600 Pro (512) (PCI-E) for my comp and when I install the card and turn the comp on my moniter stays blank. I have tried disabling the onboard display drivers and keeping them enabled and neither works. Even if i have the card in but the moniter plugged into the onboard it still stays blank. My comp is a pretty much stock HP Pavillion a1320n w/integrated Radeon Xpress 200. thanks in advance for the help and/or suggestions.

On a intel D101G MB i had to get into the BIOS and set the graphics to PCI for a PCI-E card to work. If you have already done this and it still does not work the card is probably toast. If the card is taken out and the on-board is reenabled in the BIOS does the display work?
