  1. Hello everyone! I'm new here :) Decided to ask for help here instead of dumping my pc in a shop, it costs more money!

    So here's the thing, i bought a gforce fx 5200 128mb for my xp proessional, had it seated, and turned on my pc. Before i could even reach the desktop and hear the windows opening sound clip, my monitor turned off. but i could still do some stuff with my keyboard, without video.

    I turned off the onboard vga in my bios, what next? can someone help me please? And save me rom spending cash...>.< thank you in advance!
