    hmmm, wasn't the power issue only evident with 3d apps ? Dunno. I guess the next question now is, do you know if the card even works ? Does that vid card work in another pc ?

    Well on that webpage I mentioned, it has a bit about this very problem. Take a look and see what you think.


    Q. My PC won't POST (doesn't display anything when I switch it on) after I put my GeForce card in. How can I fix it?

    Make sure that your card is firmly seated in the AGP slot, and clean away any dust in the slot or on the card.

    Make sure that your processor and RAM are firmly seated - you may have dislodged them when you installed the GeForce.

    Try a different monitor. In some rare cases the GeForce simply won't work with a certain monitor. If this is the case, try replacing the GeForce and seeing if that helps.

    Try increasing the I/O voltage of your motherboard to 3.4V in your BIOS setup if your BIOS supports it.

    Try setting the AGP Driving Value setting in your BIOS setup to EA or FF.

    Try installing the latest BIOS update for your motherboard. You can get help with finding out what BIOS you need and instructions as to how to flash it at Wim's BIOS page.

    Try delaying your drives from spinning up for a few seconds if your BIOS supports it.

    If you are using a KVM (Keyboard / Video / Mouse) switch between your GeForce and your monitor, try first connecting the GeForce directly to the monitor. If this helps, try booting the PC when the KVM is pointing at a different monitor.

    If the above solutions don't help, you may find that on motherboards that are only AGP 1.0 compliant you may be able to fix this problem by putting insulating tape over the last pair of contacts on the AGP connector on the GeForce card (the contact furthest from the monitor port, on both sides). This has been tested on the Chaintech 6BTM motherboard. You may find that once you have done this once you will be able to take the tape back off (even if the tape didn't seem to have any effect).

    If your motherboard has two power supply connectors (AT and ATX), then try connecting the ATX connector instead of the AT. ATX supplies the 3.3V required by AGP cards to run.

    If you are using PC100 RAM, try switching to PC133 RAM.

    Your Video BIOS may be corrupt (this can occasionally occur even on brand new cards). See the 'My card's Video BIOS is corrupted and I can't use my manufacturer's flash program to restore it. How can I restore it?' question for more information on how to reflash it.

    If you have an ABIT K7V motherboard and an ASUS V7700 card, and none of the above tips help, then unfortunately there seems to be a compatibility issue with the two. You'll have to change the card or the motherboard. Contact Kagemusha if want more information.

    If none of this helps, you may have a dodgy card. Try to get it replaced under warranty.

    Another thought, is this other vid card you've been using an AGP card ?
