New installation: ATI x1600 pro agp

  1. I just installed this card and when the bios screen comes up during boot-up, the screen is "static" or just lines, after the post/bios screen is done it goes black for a second then the lines come back, instead of the windows boot screen.

    i have gone into my bios to make sure i had my agp set as the default video and set the speeds as low as i can get them. just a note the MB is a mini-board. i am not getting any beep codes other than the normal beep.

    would not previously installing the drivers prevent it from displaying the post/bios startup screen? or is there something else that may be causing the "static" instead of the video?

    What was the previous video card or on-board video in the system?
