    moved computer across the room today, setup and boot, and wont boot past winXp scolling blue bar screen with geforce in, had to throw a voodoo3 from the closet in to get it to boot,(it was running fine before i moved it) what could cause a card to lock up the system like that every time? is there any way to fix the card? could it be a card bios issue?... im sure more info was needed to help diagnose the problem but i dont know what info to provide, please tell me

    If you just moved it across the room I'd double check that it was plugged in good first.
    If not the problem I'm sure someone more knowledgable then I am on..They will fix you up

    well, i did some fiddilin around with it and i found the problem, apparently somehow XP in its infinite wisdom corrupted the video cards drivers, it was hanging trying to load them, uninstalled the drivers with other video card in, cleaned out all traces of them, put my card back in and it booted, then reinstalled a fresh set of drivers and im all good, thanks anyways for the help, and about XP.... *eyes his slackware disc*
