    I think that you might be encountering the black screen bug on your video card. The same thing happened to me until I raised the AGP Voltage in the bios from 1.5v to 1.8v. By the way I have a X1950 Pro AGP 512MB

    Asus warning

    Quote : AGP slot.Install only 1.5 or 0.8 volts,not 3.3 V AGP.
    This might not apply exactly to yours,but read your manual for installing
    expansion cards.Also there might be utilities on the cd.I have VGA driver.
    This is necessary for any video card.
    So as i've said so many time.If you have a computer,you need the manuals
    and cd's for all Hardware devices.Especially the Motherboard.
    I do.:grinthumb
