    lol your description isn't v.clear but yeh. ummm make sure it's jammed in the agp slot and move the clip across to secure it.
    Have you got integrated graphics on your mobo? probably not but if u do u need to disable it. It might of enabled itself when you too your old card out.
    I reckon it's combatability problems. Get your mobo updated with bios and driver.

    And by the way does you pc load up to the desktop at all?

    it turns out that my MOBO,, for some reason doesnt like the FX chipset,,i tried a FX-5200ultra first and all kinds of probs,,then i tried a weaker FX-5200 and the same probs were thare,,so i used that $$ to get a 128 meg MX-440 and all is good,,so ill have to upgrade my MOBO to enjoy more power.

    so anyway thanks Insanemonkeyboy for your reply. :((

    have you checked for any bios updates that would have solved the problem? and before you took out the gf4 did you remove the drivers from the add/remove programs list?

    Thanks all for your responces but all i tried was to no avail,,all the suggestions were/are aprecieated.
    I read most of the post with Intel CPU & chipset did all the things spoken about short of a Full re-Install of my os.

    MSI only offers 1 Bios fix but its for the XP os.
