Hello ... I have an old Diamond Stealth64 Video 3200 graphics card (2mb PCI VRAM) that I would like to use for some older DOS and Windows games. When I insert in a PCI slot of an old Compudyne AC 486SX/25 PGA motherboard, I get no beep and no boot (I can't get to CMOS/BIOS). Nor is the monitor sensing a signal (amber LED on monitor doesn't change to green). I get the same result when I insert the Diamond card in an Abit VH6-II motherboard (no beep and no boot ...). Both the Compudyne and Abit computers work fine when I remove the Diamond card. So I'm inclined to think that the Diamond card is bad since it's an old graphics card that I used years ago, and at some point put back in its original box for safe storage after upgrading to a newer graphics cards. Is there any other test I can perform to determine if the Diamond card is indeed bad (multimeter ...?)? Any comments/suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
