Question about EliteGroup ECS 945GCT-M/1333 Motherboard - v3.0, Intel 945GC, Socket 775, MicroATX, Audio, Video, PCI Express
945GCT-M/1333 with NVidia GeForce 9800 GT. I have a Cicero flat screen monitor which works on other computers in our house. Computer was not purchased with o/s. I wish to install Windows XP. There doesn't seem to be a signal to the monitor. Is there something I must do? I am an amateur.
If there is no operating system there is nothing to see, will the machine boot into the bios settings?, if so, you need to set the computer to boot from the dvd drive, then put the disk in and let it boot from the drive, not the hard drive the dvd drive where the operating system resides. if you get to that point and have all your disks ready in case you need to instal different drivers during the install. follow the directions and you should be ok, please don't forget to rate my performance, I'll be up another hour or so if you run into trouble just try to hang on till I find you in the cue, or I'll check with in the morning, it will take about 45 minutes once you start so if you want to start tomorrow in the AM let me know, Peace and have a good night Gym

Is there a video output anywhere else on the back of the computer besides the one from the card itself that you are plugged into?
If so try it.If it works, then U may have to disable it in the BIOS in order for the new video card to work.
Thats called onboard video.Switch it to AGP/PCI or whatever other mode it offers.Another thing is to be sure that the card you have will even work on the system you have. Look up the system or motherboard and see if that particular card is equal to or less than the maximum speed of your motherboard.
