    The first thing I would do is open up the box and check all the connections. One (or more) may have wiggled loose during shipping. Don't look for complex problems until you've eliminated the simple...

    Just a guess here. Do you have the motherboard maxed out on VRAM? I've read elsewhere here that 2MB of the 4MB max is for the monitor and 2MB is for the video out. I'm not sure if that would...

    Hmmm. My 8500 had a/v in and out with 2 sets of plugs. I thought the 7500 had only one set of plugs used for audio in. I'm sure someone more versed in the 7500 will be along with the gospel.

    109 Farenheit isn't too bad, that's only 35 to 40 degrees over ambient. But another fan can't hurt and may extend the life of your processor.
