Hi, Hard Drive specs and other things are not an issue right now. My main focus is getting to my BIOS. I have an ASUS P4C800-E m-board, an Intel 478-pin 3-GHz processor, and tons of cooling in my case. My components brand's are: Maxtor(HD), ASUS(m-board, cd-rw, DVD-rom), Kingston RAM, and everything else is Thermaltake(case, power supply, cpu fan). I have an ATI 128MB PCI card in there. It's brand new, just bought it from the store about a 2 months ago, I put it into my temporary gameing machine (dell with windows 98)(not pretty but works) and it works fine. I also had a Nvidia 32MB card (also PCI) in the new build, but I do not get video with either of them. I tried taking out the battery for 24 hours, nothing. I understand that it is possible that the Bios is set for AGP only, however, I would like to avoid spending money for an AGP 8x card. Does anyone have advice?
