    Hi!
    I have an Intel Seattle 440 BX 2 Mother Board, and my father bought an Inno3d Tornado Geforce 2 MX200 card.

    I uninstalled my actual card (voodoo 3 2000), and turn off the pc and put the new agp card.
    When I turn on the computer again i hear a beep and nothing happens, the monitor doesn't turn on.

    Can anyone help to know what is my problem?
    Agp compability?
    Or please instruct me how to uninstall the old one and install the new one.

    Thank you very much.

    well,i don't know alot about intell boards,but check to make sure
    you have it seated right, take it out a nd put it back in making sure the card is seated in agp slot firmly. be sure to remove all
    your old voodoo drvs BEFORE you install your new ones!
    maybe someone using intell can help you further ,best of luck !!:cool:

    With Geforce's you need to make sure the card is seated REALLY tight into the slot...I had this same problem when switching from a voodoo to a geforce...just push hard on both ends after making sure it is fully inserted..dont' be scared I was at first, ya wont break it less ya really try heheh

    I had the same problem. Tried for weeks something like resloting the card etc... no good. But then I changed monitors with my father.. well what do you know, it worked just fine =)
