    If the light goes out after the bios and during Windows boot, you will need a Windows 7 driver for it.

    it never appears at all now,normally the light stays on even when i shut down but in this case it never did appeared and theres no windows 7 driver for it as its a piece of junk old card =( i guess i would have to go back to vista if this is the case

    If the light doesn't come on at all now, the card probablly died.

    Good thing they are cheap! Buy the cheapest one possible, just make sure it's "modern". Many have them just laying around, you could always just start a WTB thread for one. :toast:
