when I boot up my PC the monitor doesn't come on. I assume it is the video card. I put in a new video card but still can't get the monitor to work. The monitor is good, used it on a different PC. How can I get the old PC to boot up in safe mode and recogize the new video card to complete the installation?

Did you replace the onboard video with a video card? If not the problem probably isn't the video card. Reseat your RAM. Does everything seem to be working otherwise? Do you hear Windows boot up? Did you get the POST beep?

The Solution:
While Booting Into Xp During The Startup Process Press The F8 Key. In The Choices Menu Go To 'VGA MODE' And Boot Into Windows. Now Once You Have Booted, Go To The 'control Panel' And Then To The 'display' And Then To The 'settings' Option And Change The Resolution To 800x600 Or Less. Restart Into Winxp Once Again In Normal Mode And Load The Proper Drivers Of Your Video Card. You Cannot See The Display Because The Drivers Of The Video Card Are Not Loaded Properly Or The Real Drivers Are Not Loaded At All. Cheers. Partha
