Here's my situation.
Yesterday I had purchased ATI Radeon 9200, assuming it would work on my computer. The requirments said the folllowing: SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
*Intel Pentium 4/III/II/Celeron
AMD K6/Duron/Athlon/AthlonXP or compatible with AGP 2X
(3.3V), 4X (1.5V), 8X (0.8V) or Universal AGP 3.0 bus configuration
*64MB of system memory
*Installation software requires CD-ROM drive
*DVD Playback requires DVD driveOS SUPPORT
*Windows 98/98SEMemory Configuration
128MB of DDR memory
And that's what the box says, my specs seem to fit it. Here they are:
P4 1.70GHz Proc
1.256GB of DDR RAM
2X HD 40GB, and 60GB
Mobo Intel D845WN
So, me being a n00b at this, am now completely stressed. I had removed my old graphics card, uninstalled the display driver and stuck in the new one, and intstalled it's driver. So all fine and dandy, I figure, yay, I got l33t graphix now. But no, I fire up all my games just to see the blue screen of death, then to be rebooted.
I have no idea what the "2X 4X 8X" thing is, so I'm going to give you the most info I can on my computer.
Here's my motherboard http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-D845WN_P4_PGA4...CI_CNR_SND_10Pk
And according to that, my mobo is AGP 4X 1X compatible, which is what I'm reading. But the box for the Radeon 9200 card says 8X/4X so is somthing wrong with my mother board?
Has anyone encountered a problem like this before? Any tips would be appreciated...I still got the recipte, so don't be scared to break the news to me.
