  1. Hello,

    Ive just got a evga 8800 gts sc 640mb and I put it in my pc, firmly screwed down, started the pc up and all I got was a high pitched tone.
    I couldnt tell where it was coming from but its obviously an incompatibility issue.
    I just wanted some advice really on my options, the manual says you may need to download the latest agp drivers for youre mobo but I cant find them.

    CPU Type Intel Pentium 4 550, 3400 MHz (17 x 200)
    Motherboard Name MSI MS-7046
    Motherboard Chipset Intel Grantsdale i915P
    System Memory 2048 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)

    Did the sound come from the speaker or from inside the pc?

    From Inside the PC, I couldnt tell the exact destination it was coming from but it is really loud though.
