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.
