    Thank you for your interest my friend, the newcard is a geforce4, MX series, npact 4408x 64MB/TV+DVI. Yes, i have checked the installation of both cards. Used supplied CD ROM to install driver for new card. Again, thank you.... :confused:

    check your bios settings to see if you agp slot is turned on. ie your vid ram amount is set properly, that is probably an agp 4x card so make sure that is enabled.

    and then go to the nvidia website and get thge latest detonator driver.

    when you first turn your pc immediately hit the delete key. that should get you in. and then just go through the options till you see some thing regarding agp and or video ram

    Check in the control panel/System/Device manager to make sure that the old card is properly un-installed. Then uninstall the Geforce card using add/remove software, reboot and reinstall the drivers.
