The fan on an older AGP card started to fail recently. I looked for a suitable replacement heatsink/fan to fit on the card, but didn't have any luck. I found a new card at my local Micro Center, brought it home and installed it and I have no picture. I've tried the d-sub and dvi connections and no picture on either. Using another computer I read the troubleshooting notes and found that the card required the power supply to be 300W+. I can't remember exactly what mine was, but it was less than that. Assuming that was the problem I then went out and purchased a new 350W power supply. I got it installed and I still have no picture.
I'm thinking that it's a bad card or there's some other compatibility issue I'm unaware of. Anyone have any ideas?
