Re: Problems with the screen
If you take the side off the pc case and look inside, you will see the back of where your vga lead is connected to from the monitor, if it is straight into the the motherboard, you have onboard graphics, if tou see your lead connected to agraphics card fitted into a brown (AGP) slot or a white (PCI) slot, then you have a seperate graphics card.
If you have onboard graphics and suspect it is the graphics then you can fit an AGP graphics card and dissable the onboard graphics in the bios set up.

Hi, what you have not tested for isolation is your power supply, re-seating of processor for 20 minutes, cmos clearing or battery removal and mother board swapping. If all your isolation seems futile the worst is the mother board.
At this point I would try another processor and if you still can't get video with another known good working processor then that means the motherboard is bad. Also check for puffy capacitors, that would cause the motherboard not to post as well. If all the capacitors has flat heads on them then the motherboard is still bad.
Do you have two video outputs on your PC ie. one on the motherboard adn a separately installed card maybe? If you do you need to set the BIOS so that it uses the AGP/PCIE video card and not the 'onboard'. Try the onbopard vodeo card first to see if you get a signal there.
If you do NOT have two video outputs, and you can not see a signal then you may have a prblem wiht your monitor itself. Is this a known working monitor to start with?
If you buy new PCI video card there is alway CD software attached on this,you should claim for this because it was the driver for your new video card ,without it your PC will have an abrormal operation .Are you sure it was your video card?you can consider also your memory card,Wiht out hardisk,CD room,floopy your computer will run it can open your monitor configuring the cmos and bios.Try on this one disconnect hardisk,cd room,floopy then detouched your memory card clean using pencil eraser the sloted terminal of your memory card,also your video card try to clean terminal by pencil eraser.Then put back memory and video card again if the monitor work.If ok put back again the cdroom,hardisk, and floopy.If not ok Isolate checking the memory and video card also the processor.
I'm surprised that you can get this car into the slot, since from all I can find, the HIS 2600 xt is a PCI-E card and not AGP. In some cases, there is just a compatibility issue and since the MB manufacturers have moved to PCI-E from AGP, there are fewer options for new cards. Take it back and see if oyu can find a different card that will work wiht oyur motherboard.
Its probably a hardware issue. the video card has dedicated memory so there shouldnt be any problems unless the card is bad. Try removing any extra cards like wireless adapters and expanded firewire cards and sounds card. try running the game wiht just the video card in and see if it still does it. if it doesnt, you know its having conflicts with other hardware, if not, then try removing all the video card software and installing just the drivers without the xtra software. I had similar problems with Two ATI cards, The catalyst software was causiong problems, i removed it but kept the drivers, and all my problems went away.
