So I acquired this old clunker of a computer. Runs Windows 98 (before the bashings begin, it is intended to become a linux-based server). Has PS1 keyboard port, and used a serial port for the mouse.

After a trip to Tiger Direct to get a USB PCI card for a more modern mouse and keyboard (they didnt come with it), installing them, and in doing so, moving the vid card around, I started it up.

It gives me no output on the video. I dont think the card is bad, and I know the monitor isnt bad. The card worked a week ago (as I saw it in action with the guy that gave it to me).

Before you go diaging everything else in the box, I know most of the rest of it works, as my optical usb mouse is lighting up, I can hear the HDs spin up, and both CD drives light up. Also for the PCI slots, the NICs light up (one is plugged in to my network, and shows activity).

Several of the NICs and of course the USB card got moved and handeled during the installation of the USB card, plus the video card. So I dont think its ESD as I grounded myself pretty well with a strap and whatnot during this...

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Use the Force, Luke.
