    Hello,

    Well there's not much you can do without another video card to test it. Not sure what we can do to help.

    You could try re-seating the video card... pull it out and put it back in firmly?

    BTW, does anyone beside me read "mac pro torn" and see "mac p...orn" :eek:

    I would also check the cable for proper seating at the graphics card.

    is the keyboard plugged into the tower or the display?
    are you using a different cable with your laptop and that display?
    can you use your macpro with your tv?


    btw, its turn on.:cool:
