Thumbs up

Yes, the video card has most likely died. The yellow light indicates that the monitor is not receiving a signal.

Hey , Smokey;
Can't other cards cause it to happen also ? It happened to me several months ago and wasn't the video card. I don't recall which it was though. Volt helped me out on that one.

Cool Card

Check to make sure the video card is fully seated. But I agree the card has most likely died. How old is the puter? OS? Memory? Mainboard? PCI or AGP slots? If itís an old slow puter you should probably look for a 4 to 8 meg PCI/ISA/AGP card for around $40 or so.
