    Most likely an IRQ or port conflict... Man I havn't said that in a long time... The first place to check will be the BIOS...

    Have you tried just using a different slot?

    No kidding, those kinds of problems shouldn't ever really happen anymore. (Not saying that is the problem in this instance tho) I'd also suggest trying a different slot.

    See the problem is, I cant go to the BIOS since the monitor never turns on...

    Have you tried removing the card, firing the system up and then upgrading the BIOS to the latest version? Some older boards won't support newer devices such as that...

    I didn't mean to check the BIOS with the card installed... What you want to do is check you BIOS without the card installed to see if you, or someone else, has hard coded any of the IRQ's... This can be especially true if dealing with an onboard video chipset... However, no matter the case, ensure that your video card is not using an IRQ... Many of these do not really require an IRQ...

    The settings for IRQ's can be found in a variety of places... You could also do what weazel suggested...

    Yeah oracleguy, as strange as it sounds... It even sounded strange to me to type out... :yikes:
