Problems with E-Geforce 7200 GS

Ok, so here is the situation,

Have an old 6600 gt in my computer as of right now. It is dyin, and I can only boot up in safe mode or in vga mode to get any kind of display. At bios, I am showing artifacts up and down screen. In vga, its 8 bit color with 640X 480 resolution, and in safe mode it gets 800X 600 in 32 bit color.

I just went to the store to day to buy a cheap replacement. Got a 7200 gs for 40 bucks. Old as sin, but bottom line I just wanted to be able to view my computer in normal quality.

However, when I put the 7200 in my computer, it does not even register. Meaning I cant even get the bios and load up to display. Lcd monitor remains blank and light flashes on and off. I cannot figure out why this card would not work with this system. I can't imagine it being an issue with anything else other than the card, because, and though its annoying, I can still use my computer with moderate success in vga (music, movies, browsing).

If anyone has any ideas, or can point me in the right direction, I would be most appreciative. Been like this for a couple months, but been too poor and lazy (recent college grad) to fix it. Now I am in a spot where I can, and would like to hear some advice, thanks so much,

  1. We'll need to know the rest of the parts in your system, especially the mobo.

    Fair enough,

    DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR is the current motherboard Im using. This includes:

    2 corsair ddr 2 1 gig sticks of ram

    6600 GT Geforce (All but dead it seems)

    Amd Athlon 3000+ ~2200 Mhz

    Creative Soundblaster Audigy ZS Sound Card

    I believe a Seagate 200 GB Hard Drive 7200 RPM

    Coolmax CX-450B PSU

    Card I am trying to use is the E-Geforce 7200 GS
  3. As a side note, I just tried using an old CRT monitor and plugged it into the adapter that came with the card, and got the same results (No Signal/Input) so it is definitely an issue with something int he computers innards.
  4. I got a dead 7200 GS from Newegg today, 2nd one in the past couple months, starting not to trust them anymore.
