Do the fans on the vid card spin up, what's ur power supply?

try pulling out the video card, and putting it back in, try cleaning it and check the monitor. Your monitor's 15 pin wire may not be getting contact either. Try using it on a different computer or a different monitor -_-

when the GF3 ti200 wouldnt work , i made sure it wasnt the monitor problem by inserting my old GF2 back in my pc , i turned my pc on and no problems~ i'm using the GF2 to run this pc to write this message now~ hmm i havent got a clue~~
someone suggested maybe its my power supply~ since i got this amd xp 1800 cpu only bout 2 weeks ago , then got this GF3 yesterday , my pc has 300w of power , u guys think it's the power ???

300W P/S is the absolutely minimum, it was probably borderline with the AMD, until you put in the GF3, I would get at least a 350W P/S, that GF3 TI-200 is a high performance card.
