The other day, I went out to the computer store and plunked down 250 of my hard earned dollars for a MSI NX6600 GT. When I went home, and plugged my card into my shiny 2-year old pc...it didn't work. :thumbsup:

The card is listed as AGP 8x. My mobo is AGP 2/4x, but it is an AGP 2.0 compliant board. When I plug the card into the AGP slot, and the molex connector into the back of the card...the fan spins, the mobo bleeps, and makes the normal posting sound. However, there is nothing whatsoever on my monitor... :flowers: I was assured by the salesman that the card should work in an AGP 4x slot...was he wrong, or is the something wrong with my computer?

If this helps, here's the link to my mobo specs... ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherbo...g2/A8491301.pdf

did you check your Power Supply? 6600GT requires atleast a 350watt power supply. you said your PC was 2 years old, so, i'm guessing you have a 200-300watt power supply. not enuf. check your power supply specs. just because the mobo is compatible, doesnt mean your power supply is.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Well, the original blew up during a power outage...and I'm fairly confident the new one has enough power.
