Im trying to install the Tornado GeFORCE FX 5200 8x 256MB (128bit) Graphics card, but im having serious difficulty.

Basically the computer recognises the card on startup and loads to windows XP, i log in, install the driver, and it asks to reboot, so i do...the next time it loads up XP i log in and while loading up XP THE SCREEN LOCKS UP!!! after 5 pr 6 clicks of the mouse.

Ive upgraded the Via chipset with the Via 4in1 driver set.

COM SPEC:

AMD ATHLON 1700 XP, V266B motherboard, 200/266MHz (DDR) front side bus, VIA KT-266A chipset, Northbridge- VT8366A, Southbridge VT8233A, 600+MB RAM, standard monitor, AGP 4x.

If anyone can help me, that would be great...dont wanna put this fine crafted graphics card to waste!!

Any Ideas??

What was the previous card?

Did you uninstall the old drivers first?

I would uninstall all drivers (old and new) reboot

Allow windows to install the default drivers.

Check all is working oK (it'll be 640 x 480 and 16 colour)

then install the drivers and reboot.

I would uninstall all drivers (old and new) with the old card in

Shut Down

Swap new card in

Start up

Allow windows to install the default drivers.

Check all is working OK (it'll be 640 x 480 and 16 colour)

Then install the drivers and reboot.

present card Nvidia GeFORCE 4MX 440

i uninstalled nvidia 200/xp driver and then the card in device manager....then shut down...installed the new card and same problem.

One thing the manaul says is 'it is very important that you install the correct AGP BUS driver b4 installing card'

i just installed the via 4in1, thats good enough yeah?
