    I just got a new asus nvidia geforce 7600 GS 256mb. It's an AGP card, and I put it in the AGP slot on my Gigabyte 8TRX330-L motherboard. I made sure the auxilary power cable was plugged in, plugged the monitor signal cable in and turned the computer on, but nothing appears on the monitor. Anyone know what the problem could be? My power supply is an ATX 12V 2.0 400w supply, so I dont see how there could be a problem there.

    What Video card did you have in that PC before?

    I had a geforce fx 5600, which had an 'accident'. Then I temporarily replaced that with a geforce ultra 2 until I could get an improved GFX card. So the last card I had was the geforce ultra 2.

    It's in the AGP slot. I dont know whether it can go in a PCI slot or not.

    If the other card worked then try the one that doesn't in another PC and see if it works.

    I may give that a try but I doubt it's a problem with my motherboard cause it's new.
