Heres my problem. I just installed a new abit nf7 series mobo, amd athlon xp 2600, volcano 8 cooling fan and a stick of ram. I turned it on now my monitor isnt detecting my 9800pro. Any suggestions? The computer itself turns on, but the monitor just sits there black.

Before anyone asks I would have reformated my old stuff BUT my mobo died and took my cpu with it. There is also no other way to plug in my monitor there is no on board graphics card.

I installed the same card into my moms computer and it works so the card isnt dead. What could be the problem?


Now my mobo has no onboard graphics so I cant plug my monitor into the appropriate slot.

I saw a topic similar to my problem but the thing is I cant even get into the bios options to fix it my monitor is completely blank.

Are you saying that you are using the same hard drive as before?
If so that isn't going to work. If you don't see the initial screen that shows your bios type and counts your ram and you aren't getting any beeps you have not installed everything correctly. Disconnect all the peripherals so you have only the mobo, CPU, Ram and Video card. Don't even connect the hard drive. You should be able to access the bios and get the initial screen at that point.

What is your operating system?

try doing the above stuff with the mobo out of the case on a piece of cardboard...you'll probably have to take your psu out of the case so the wires will reach
