Video card- no display

    I recently got a barebone kit PC and transferred my old hard drives and CD drive ok, but if I use my video card the monitor won't get any signal, and I've tried plugging it into the video card and the motherboard. The monitor works fine if the video card isn't in the computer. It's an Nvidia Riva TNT2, so it's an older one. Is it just too out of date to be using it with a newer motherboard?

    Side note- I'm running Suse Linux 9.1, and it won't recognize my mouse scroll wheel. How do I change that?

    You mean the video card on your motherboard??

    If so, check the BIOS and see if you have to disable the on-board VGA for a PCI video card to work.

    +1. Your BIOS will have an option for PCI, On Board, and Possibly AGP video. You must set it to PCI for it to use the TNT2.

    Option 2 is that you broke it moving it over. :)
