Monitor doesn't work with new graphics card?

  1. hey guys,
    yesterday i bought a new Nvidia XFX 7600gt AGP to replace my old 5200 AGP and i got 512mb ram to up my gaming performance. I put these into my computer, the correct slots and everything, plugged my comp back in with the new adapter from the comp to monitor and then the problem began. The computer booted up, and the monitor had power, but nothing was displayed on the screen. Instead of a green light on the monitor, there is an amber one like when it's in standby. I'm baffled.
    My specs are:
    Intel Pentium 4 3CPUS
    3.00ghz
    Previously had 512mb ram, just put another 512 in.
    Previously had 5200 AGP, just put in a 7600GT AGP.

    Any help would be appreciated!
