The "flickering" bothers me.
Have you tried that monitor on another computer?

Everything you need for the board is Here.
Click on the "manual" tab to get your manual.

Im running out of ideas for the possible easy fix answer.
There is a couple of things Ive suggested that you havn`t
said if you tried or not, such as making sure that the atx
4 pin plug is in properley & trying a standard pci gfx card
in a pci slot instead of using the pci-e slot, you said you
googled how to reset the cmos! did you print your motherboard
manual off? you may need this should you have to take the
mobo out of the case, was there a lead supplied with your new
monitor? if not the old monitor lead could still be the culprit.
Also I must mention it could be a faulty psu which would need
testing.

i took the card back to where i brought it from. turns out the card itself was faulty. i brought a new one and it does give an output to my monitor (thank god) its a PNY GeForce Card. and for some reason i cant install the drivers.it says that my card isnt compatible with the current set of drivers. so like whats that about ? why would the installation disk come with an incompatible card right ?

Does the computer boot up?
Are you in windows yet? based on the error, I assume you are in windows.
Lets look at a couple things.

Please Go to
[list]
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation ! marks or Red X's

In your next reply please include those results
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lets see if we can get some system information.

Download and install PC Wizard 2010

Run the program and it will analyze your computer and then display the results.
In the upper left hand corner click on the floppy icon.
You will get a save as screen.
Change the range bullet "only this selection" to be "selected category".
Make sure that text is selected for format.
Click on ok and you will be given a spot to save it to.

Attach it to your response.

did some digging on that and i was starting to think that maybe it was something wrong with my drivers like you said, but then i look at the files that were on the cd. it says Vista and vista 64-bit, and also Windows XP and XP 64-bit. nothing about win 7 so im guessing that my graphics card isnt compatible so i guess that ONCE AGAIN im going to exchange this card in for another one. ill let you know how that goes.

PC Wizard shows you have 2 video cards.
"Video Card : VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM". Is this what you have? or
"nVidia CUDA"

The drivers for the VIA Chrome are here http://www.pcpitstop...amily~WDDM.html

A google search for "nvidia cuda drivers download win 7" gives me this link http://www.nvidia.co..._9.10.0129.html

So what board do you have in there?

that first link has no available downloads on it. is just says none everywhere. and as for that second link...well it just didnt work.
http://www.nvidia.co...97.13_whql.html is the driver i have, but it wont work. my it teacher at my school (who in my opinion is a genius, like you) at my school told me i could bring it in on monday. so ill see how it goes. but still im open to any suggestions because im at my wits end. :)
