  1. Hi, recently i posted another topic about my computer not booting. Well i found out that it was a video card problem. I switched out my x800xl card and put in my geforce 2 and the computer booted up fine. When the x800xl card is in all it shows is a blinking line _ and the card name (radeon x800xl) and thats it. I cannot get into cmos or boot. I tried the card in my brothers computer which has a radeon 9600 and it still doesnt boot and shows the same thing that my computer shows (blinking line and card name). Is this card totally dead? It still shows GPU information on the monitor. Is there any way to salvage this card?
