    Here's what I've got:

    AMD xp 2000+
    Chaintech 7VJL1
    MSI Geforce 4 TI4400
    WD 60gb
    Lite-on DVD

    Just a little gaming computer, but here's the problem:

    I updated the bios, and all the video displays are corupted. Bios post is glitched with strange purples in place of the white. When loading Windows, glitches and color changes in background. (Spots of white over the blue, black bars over white text.) Before the bios update, appeared to be working fine, now these graphic problems. Tried re-seating the video card, same problem. Any other ideas? Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Looks like it was the video card. Tried a diffrent one, and it worked like a champ. Any that can suggest any cards that might work well with this set-up, feel free to let your opinions fly.

    An Apollo mx440 I had from an old system. Tried the MSI in the second system it came from, one that had everything up and running, and it had the same problem, two re-boots, and then graphic errors. The MSI card is either defective, or causing some freaky system errors to happen by chance in each computer it's put in.
