I would try this.

Turn computer off.

Remove the video card.

Start computer while holding the F8 key to get into Safe Mode.

Safe Mode uses standard VGA which is built into windows ME.

If your monitor shows the Safe Mode screen then something is wrong with the video card.

Maybe it came loose or something.

But if you get into Safe Mode you will be able to troubleshoot from there.
