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.

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 =)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
