Radeon x1300 installation problem

  1. I need to install a new vidoe card because my onboard doesn't fully support directx 9.0. Here are my computer specs:

    hp a824n
    910 gv chipset
    dual pentium 4 3ghz
    1G RAM
    3 PCI slots
    no pci-e or agp :(
    on board graphics
    Windows xp sp2
    power supply:
    AC input voltage (47-63Hz):
    DC output wattage: 300 Watts

    So, I bought a radeon x1300 pci. It installed okay and I changed the BIOS to use PCI, but it doesn't seem to work. I get all the way to point where I should see the users names for logging in, but the screen is just kinda gray. I installed all the latest drivers and updated the BIOS, but no go. The device manager says: This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

    Not sure what to do from here.

    All help appreciated.

    Have you tried going into safe mode ? Did you try the other output of the video card ? Did you connect the molex power to the card ?
