  1. I formatted my pc and wanted to reinstall my nvidia geforce fx5200 graphics card, but when i install the card an turn on the pc nothing appears on the monitor.

    This may seem too basic so don't take this the wrong way but when you installed the graphics card did you switch the monitor cable from the onboard graphics connector to the graphics card connector?
