This might sound stupid but make sure you have pushed the AGP card in really hard. Although it may appear its in as I found once it wasn't fully in.

Don't think so mate. Remove all the cards and memory modules from the Mainboard. Blow away all the dust from the cabinet. Clean the contact edges of all the cards and memory. Re-insert all the stuff in it's own respective places. Also remove the fittings (screws) of mainboard and refit. Just to make sure it's is not 'moved' slightly from it's place.

If that doesn't work then try to shuffle the position of memory module(s) and if not AGP or On-board card then PCI VGA (display) card.

If no success... then remove every thing again and try the power ON with Mainboard, CPU, memory and graphics card only. Then all the other devices one by one.

HTH m8 !!

How long did you wait? when you turned the PC on? it might be a while to initialize, and the monitor will come on, try it.
