Well, it seems there's no end of these problem with radeon 9700 pro. So, here's another one.

I have following problem with Asus P4S8X and Radeon 9700 Pro. There's no video signal after boot up (new computer, nothing installed) on monitor (I think it's called the post phase). I have updated bios to newest version. I checked that my hardware installation is ok with two other graphic cards (pci Riva tnt and agp Radeon 64ddr) and they worked correctly (this way I can see bios). New Radeon 9700 worked however in other much older computer. So hardware is not broke and installation is correct. I I have no idea what to try next.
This isnt helping me a bit.

My hardware:
P4 2.8Mhz, 1Gg Ram, Hercules Radeon 9700 Pro, ASUS P4S8X, 450W, SB Audigy2, 3com, 120Gb western digital...

The 9700pro doesn't work well with the Sis648 chipset.

It may or not work depending on motherboard revision, motherboard BIOS, 9700pro revision, 9700pro stepping, and 9700pro BIOS.

Do you happen to have both the DVI and VGA cables plugged into the card? Try using just the VGA cable first.
