I have an old Dell inspiration 8100 with XP PRO.
And as I mentioned in the description my screen is blank(like if it's turned off).
It does show up for a moment at start-up.
Pretty sure I need a new video card.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The 1st thing to try is to borrow a monitor from someone and plug that in and see if it works.
That will eliminate the screen altogether.
