have just purchased a geforce4 mx440 agp. After i installed it the computer won't power up. When i put my old rage pro back in it powers up ok. Have i got a duff card. Can any body help.

What motherboard is it - it's just possible, if it's an old one, that the card is not compatible.

And, of course, the card may be faulty.

Also I remember having some DFI motherboards that would not run, specifically, a GeF4 MX card, without a BIOS update (this is unusual tho')

Check the power supply is minimum 350W, and that the card is seated properly.

insert the card, remove ALL other cards (modem, sound etc) remove all peripherals, unplug keyboard & mouse, so the only things plugged in are vga and power, then try.

let us know the result.

take the card back and change it for a radeon9000pro it will work with no probs. its as simple as this, some systems just dont like some cards and the only way around it is to get a card with a different GPU.

i had this problem way back when a K6\2 500 was the muts bits i bought a elsa gladiac GF2 based card it just didnt like it changed it for a kyro2 GPU and it loved it to bits for the rest of its life

You have to remove the drivers for the old card before inserting the new one.

Thanks all who gave their advice.
As it turns out i didn't push the card in hard enough. all up and running now.
Am i a prat or what. We all got to learn one way or another.
