need help!

Recommended Posts

well it sounds like it might be something with the mobo or the cpu...b/c you said you put your old mobo back in and the vid card worked just fine.  so what i would do woould be to take my cpu to a freinds house and let them try it out to see if it works and then have a friend test your mobo with there processor b/c if it can run the xp processors it can run an older one like a duron or athlon.

 

you might also want to see if the motherboard can hadle that card or if there is a bios update to make it work with those cards.

 

hope this helps you

To me it sounds like its the motherboard..

 

I wanna say.. mebbe.. the agp slot is messed up or something.. can you by anychance try a PCI video card in the MSI board..

 

I really dont think it is the processer..

 

and If you can get it to boot with the pci vid card.. I would have the motherboard taken back and looked at.. still under warrenty?

The problem is that I don't know anyone with an Athlon or Duron, so I cant have a friend help me test it out.

Just incase anyone else is interested, I've been reading the MSI forums and it seems quite a lot of people have had problems with these boards.

Sounds like you board. Try testing your card in someone else's computer if possible. From what your saying sounds like a bad AGP slot. Do like Psywar said maybe even try as pci card aswell.  ???
