I have an older PIII Tangent computer which will not recognize the monitor. It continues to display “no signal” on the monitor despite any of the steps I’ve taken. The machine was running Windows 98SE when it last worked. Here are the things I have already checked.
1. I unconnected everything removed all cards except the video card and turned it on.
2. I replaced with new memory and reseated the memory modules after checking each one individually.
3. I removed and replaced the CMOS battery with a new one.
4. I swapped out the monitor with a known good one.
5. I replaced the video card with a brand new one which was also a AGP version compatible with w98SE.
6. I even replaced the video card with an older PCI card using the PCI only slot.

I usually don’t have any problems with determining the problem and replacing the hardware, but this time however, I am stumped. The only thing I can figure is the PCI/AGP slot on the motherboard itself is bad. I obviously cannot get into the bios or OS to see the settings to determine if that may be the problem. Hopefully you will be able to help me solve this problem.

Thanks for your help,

I just swapped out the power supply with a new one and still no signal. Is it possible to test the PCI/AGP slot for power with the volt meter? Are there any other tests I can run on the slot?

I forgot to mention, the old card is a e0TNT2 Vanta TV 016-A2-NV14-01

The new card is a Diamond Stealth S60 ATI Radeon 7000

does your system power on, just without video? -or does your system not even power up at all?
