    have AMD T-Bird 1.4 GHz with 256DDR on Asus A7M266 motherboard. Using ATI all in Wonder PCI card PCI. Could not get video out to monitor. To verify wasn't defective card took working 3dfx Voodo card out of another machine and still no output. Put ATI card in another machine and verified it was working. Have tried cards in different PCI slots - still no video output. Get nothing but black screen when computer initializes. How do you proceed to diagnose? Last resort would be to purchase AGP card and see what happens. Would appreciate any suggestions.

    Are you sure it is booting up and not just dead????

    Do you hear the drives spinning up, any windows startup sounds?
