New AGP Graphics Card

I have two PC's and decided to use the "bits" fom my older desktop and have them put into a new case etc with new motherborad, processor (2,500mhz) and 120 gb memory.

After the upgrade had been done I then decided to upgrade the graphics card to an nvidia Geforce 4 MX440 8 x AGP which I've fitted myself. The problem I have is that when I connect the monitor to the AGP card the system boots ok, however the monitor turns itself off into standby. I've tried changing the refresh rate - no luck; I've tried booting in safe mode - no luck; I've tried taking the PCI card out so that only the AGP card is fitted - no luck. It's the original monitor which is a CRT one and I used it when I had Windows 98 SE on the old PC and it worked fine.

What graphics did you have before you upgraded?was it onboard if so did you remove graphics drivers for old setup and instal new drivers.
