    Hey, I'm new here and i've had this problem for over a month now. I have a GeForce4 MX 420 64Mb. The problem is that my computer cannot seem to find my graphics card anymore and the "display adapters" in the device manager dissapeared along with my graphics card. This problem started a month ago when my monitor went into standby or hibernation and when I came back the screen didn't want to turn on anymore, i tried pressing keys and moving mouse but nothing happened. So i turned off my computer manually and when it came back on I had this problem.
    I've tried installing the latest drivers from nVIDIA.com but none of this has helped, i've also taken out the graphics card and replaced it again but still nothing. I have windows XP with Service Pack 2.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated because i have been trying to solve this for a while now.

    Have you isolated the problem yet? By which I mean have you tried replacing that video card with one you know is good? If so did that video card work?
