first of all we have to establish weather its a driver/software problem or hardware ?

if the hardware is absolutely fine then you may need to go into bios and chnage your default display to PCI and reboot computer and if you get a bios splash screen coming through to your monitor the hardware is fine,

if you do not get anything through to monitor then check your monitor check your cables try another PCI slot

if you do get a bios flash screen boot into safe mode download latest drivers and you should be good to go

He who has never failed has never attempted anything worth succeeding at.

I have a Compaq 5000 series PC. They are not one of the better systems by Compaq and I was having a similar problem. I had an AGP card in it and it was kinda weird looking on the picture, so I replaced it with a PCI card, except the video wouldn't show up after several restarts. I tried a different PCI slot and eventually got it to work.

You should also disable the integrated video in the Device Manager in Windows. I went from integrated to the raedon 9250 on a different PC and I couldn't figure out why the picture wouldn't show until I disabled the integrated in Device Manager.

Hopefully one of these suggestions will work...
