You don't have a DVI connection on your monitor? It must either be an old LCD or a CRT.
Check to see if you have a DVI port if it is an LCD monitor.
You can get a DVI cable cheap, or if you don't have a DVI connection, you can get a DVI to VGA adapter.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, there are DVI sockets on the monitors - I've never used them and forgot they were there. The card works fine - no crashing zooming in and out with Google Earth. The Experience index for Graphics went up from 2.0 to 6.8 and the overall base score from 2.0 to 5.9 - a big difference.
No problems with audio, this model must be closer to your 8200 Elite than the dc7800 in this respect. The system downloaded drivers and all I had to do is reboot. The CD that came with the card was not needed. I've a bit more respect for Windows 7 now, prior experience with drivers involved searching for them.
Again, thanks for your help.

You're very welcome, Doug.
Glad you didn't have to mess with any BIOS settings. The overall WEI on my 8200 Elite is also 5.9--the weak link now being the hard drive.
