hi im a newb i have a win98 with a p3 (all that i really know about it). I purchased a geforce mx4000 and went to install it.... thought this would help with the error i was receiving while trying to play the sims2. Anyhow I went to power on and...nothing, no fan, no lights, completely dead. So I took it out and put back my old card, geforce 2. Went to power on again... nothing. So, my next move was trying to install the mx4000 on my other machine win98 p2 (i believe). Same problem, my first inital thought was the power supply, tried swapping them, that did not result in any progress. I also called Nvidia and the only advise they gave me was to take out the button cell battery and put it back in after a minute...worthless. So I took both machines to my parents, they are pretty tech savvy. They are letting me use their xp machine while I get this whole mess figured out. I returned toe mx4000 for a refund, too frustrated to even risk trying to put it in the xp machine and fry it as well. So basically my question... what happened and why? Is it safe to try another mx4000 in the xp machine? Thanx for any help.
