    Damaged mobo perhaps?
    What Slayerstaps is trying to say is that you should eliminate all possibilites before assuming that your card is dead, there's always hope that some other component may be responsible for a video problem, specially when the video card is by far the most expensive component in your PC. Good luck.

    Hi,
    Im actually running my PC at the moment with an old GeForce FX 5200, surely if it was my motherboard (which is less then a week old) no card would work??????? But to be on the safe side Im going to test it on my m8s PC.

    If its not too late, try and clean the metal connectors that go into the agp slot on the card with rubbing alcohol and qtips. My Geforce 4 stopped working in any computer, and i did this and now it works perfectly.

    Try putting it in some dirty washing up water but u must leave it to soak over night.
    then in the morning place it in the microwave to dry it u want that on high power after that u have to put the placenta of a recently born baby on it. Spin round 3 times then it should work if all else fails u could always, give me your mobo p4 and memory thx.












    ps all its ok im a m8 of hookey's

    I just hope nothing else dies on me, I cained my PSU the other week (admittedly it was a piece of shite Q-Tec 300Watter) Thats why Im not going overboard with my P4 CPU (Ive only got stock cooling on it at the moment)
