  1. Hi im new here so hi everyone
    well my problem is this
    i have two cpu's one with a 9800 pro and the other with a 9600xt
    no my 9800 pro's fan died or it was going slow i should say
    so i took it out and put it in the one with the 9600xt to see if it was a psu problem.
    well it turn out it was the fan so i got a new one and its fine now
    so now for the big problem on the cpu with the 9600xt it worked fine before installing the 9800 pro and by installing i mean just taking the 9600xt out and sticking the other 9800pro in without instaling any drivers i didnt let it boot all the way to windows just to the post to see if the fan worked well now when i stick in the 9600xt all i see is black and it dosent say no signal for the monitor just black so i took the 9600xt and put it in the cpu that the 9800pro was in and it works fine any clue as to why its doing this i tryed reseting the bios ie taking the batteri out and moving the jumpers but this did not work im at a lost i dont think i could of fried the agp slot never heard of that happing
    anywho any help would be great thanks in advance.

    boot the machine in safe mode, uninstall the praphics card. then reinstall the card when windows reboots normally.
