Trouble with video card

  1. I have a Radeon 9250 128MB PCI card, when I attach it to my computer it doesn't seem to power on fully, I get a yellow light instead of a green light, and it won't even boot up to Windows, my screen just stays black, and my computer seems to be on standby. If I disconnect the video card my system boots up like normal. I attached the video card onto my other computer, and it worked perfectly, so it can't be a broken video card I assume. When I first got the video card (was put in by an actual compuet guy) it worked fine, but after I wiped my harddrive and tried to use the videocard again is when it started having problems. Anyone have any ideas?

    Basically:
    Dell - Dimension 2400
    1256 ram
    3 ghz

    I don't know much about computers, other then how to play games on them, so any help, would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello rustyfoz04,
    I'm sorry if I ask a stupid question:
    - Did you plug your monitor into the new driver card?
