    Hi people

    im having trouble with a riva 128 zx card. i originally had a 64 tnt card and replaced it with the 128 but now my pc wont recognise either of them. the computer turns on fine but the monitor is not responding to either cards. both the monitors are fine, cables etc but they wont respond to the cards. i tested the 64 on another pc and its working fine, but my main pc wont accept them.

    ive got a p4 1.6 ghz
    256 mb ram
    cd-rom
    dvd
    and other typical stuff but i can seem to figure out any obvious things that are causing this to happen.

    You'd probably need more info than that so just ask but i can't remember EXACTLY whats in the pc. I can't look at the specs because no monitor will work.

    any help would be great, this is driving me mad :eek:

    For something make sure nothing has been disturbed inside the case like the RAM chips.

    ok..from what I can see there seems to be nothing damaged or out of place. My idea is that it must either be the cards themselves on the slot on the m/board.

    You tested one of the cards on another system and it worked before so it wouldn't seem to be the video cards. Try disconnecting everything except the CPU/fan, RAM and video card. If still nothing reset CMOS either by the jumpers on the motherboard or removing the battery.
