The video card may be faulty so try and borrow one and install that. No need to install the driver for the borrowed card unless you intend to keep it. As long as you get something on the screen it means the borrowed card is okay but your card is faulty.

First thing to try is booting into "Safe Mode" by tapping the F8 key during boot-up. "Safe Mode" use a default, generic video driver. If you have video in "Safe Mode", chances are your hardware is okay, but your driver may be corrupted of missing.

If you have no video in "Safe Mode", there's a good chance the card is faulty, or needs re-seating. Remove the card from the PCI slot (with the PC turned off, of course), then push it back into the same slot, ensuring it is firmly seated.

Boot the computer ( maybe even trying "Safe Mode" again) and see if you now have video.

If no luck, your card is probably past its usefulness. That's an old card (ten years or more), so I wouldn't be surprised if it's dead. Sounds like time to upgrade to newer hardware.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.

Do you mean TNT Vanta card? If so, that card is really old.

Has that card been installed in your computer and working in the past?

Your power supply could also be the problem.
