did you remove all the nvidia drivers before you swapped the card?

does it work properly if you put the nvidia card back in?

typically, you would want to remove all the drivers for the nvidia, power down. swap the card, power up, and you should have a standard low res display. then install the ATI drivers, and you should be set.

or just upgrade to an Nvidia 6600 :tazz:
make sure the moniter is in the right spot...try another moniter too.

it says "No signal Found"

this is usually a moniter problem where it isnt even plugged into the comp.

I'll assume you have molex power connected to your 9800Pro (hated to say that but one never knows). Download and use this little tool to clean up your old NVidia drivers and reboot. What happens now?

If you first have to put that 5200 back in to see anything, do so, then reset to standard VGA adapter, reboot, run this same tool and then shut down, switch cards and reboot. What happens now?

:tazz:

Slow down there nixx, lets give this a try before sending him/her out shopping or swapping. If no go, them I'm with you all the way.

zuzar - give this a whirl. It might surprise you. If you first have to put that 5200 back in to see anything, do so, then reset to standard VGA adapter, reboot, run this same tool and then shut down, switch cards and reboot. What happens now?

Here's that tool. It looks like it didn't copy when I pasted the same text from my previous post to you. Follow my instructions above. When you run this, select multiple filters and take out all things NVidia related - every option you are offered. Do the same for ATI if you tried to install any ATI drivers previously. Rebot in between each but stick to my above paragraph. Post back.

audioboy - good call on that re: his controllers. :tazz: I take too much for granted and while I meant all things NVidia video related, thats not what I said. I'll try to be more careful re: assuming knowledge that might not be there.

As to a second chapter -I'll fire that tool up later on using a Board with an NVidia nForce chipset and an NVidia video card and post some specifics. Sure don't want anybody pulling out anything other than "left over" video related drivers and its a powerful little tool.

Will run on the following and post better instructions :

HighPoint HPT372A Ultra-ATA/133 RAID Controller
nVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Video Adapter
nVIDIA MCP2 - EHCI USB 2.0 Controller
nVIDIA MCP2 - FireWire Controller
nVIDIA MCP2 - LAN Controller
nVIDIA MCP2 - LPC Bridge
nVIDIA MCP2 - OHCI USB Controller
nVIDIA MCP2 - OHCI USB Controller
nVIDIA MCP2 - Parallel ATA Controller
nVIDIA MCP2 - PCI-PCI Bridge
nVIDIA MCP2 - SMBus Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 - AGP Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 - Memory Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 - Memory Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 - Memory Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 - Memory Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 - System Controller
nVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 - Memory Controller

Regards,
;)
