Ok first off:

Woke up this morning to find my graphics card was broken. Its was an old Nvidia fx 5500 or summing.

Went out and brought a nvidia 7300 gt 512mb agp8x

I removed the old grahpics card, and resorted back to the onboard one so that i could access control panel and uninstal it.

I then Put the new graphics card in and hocked it up with my monitor, when i turn on my computer there is no signal from computer to monitor so nothing is displayed? Why?

I removed the graphics card and once again went back to onboard one, i tired using the cd that came with 7300gt but it said no device could be found (obviously) since i removed it. But when i try to use my onboard graphics card while the 7300gt is in, it doesnt work.

Ram: 1GB
Processor: AMD Sempron(tm) 2600+, mmx, 3dnow, 1.8ghz
Mainboard: Unspecifed K7S41GX
Chipset: Sis 741gx
Power: Output 400W

Anyway, dunno what to do

Really need the help

When your new card is installed, make sure the cable is hooked to it and also make sure that the Initial Display in BIOS is set to AGP.

Yes cable is attached

And yup went into the bios and set it to agp as main. Still no luck

Clear Cmos and try again.
