I'm building a new sytem with an EPOX 9npa+ultra MoBo and an Athlon64 3000+ processor.
When I put the AIW card (purchased at trade show) into its PCI-express slot, I get an unreadable screen when I boot up. So, I took it out, and put in an old 3dfx voodoo3 card into one of the PCI slots. I was able to see screen on boot and install my OS (WIndows XP Home).
Believing I got stuck with a lemmon AIW card, I went to Compusa and purchased ANOTHER AIW x600Pro. Took out the Voodoo, inserted the new card in the PCI-E, and.. same old problem.
Also, the onboard LED Post for the MoBo reads "FF"
Does it sound like a bad MoBo (specifically and bad PCI-E on the MoBo) or does it sound like I need a BIOS update or something?

Here's my system:
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice Processor
EPOX 9NPA+Ultra
Thermaltake SOPRANO VB1000SWS Silver ATX Mid Tower Case
OCZ PowerStream OCZ420ADJ ATX 420W Power Supply
Corsair Value Select (Dual Pack) 184 Pin 512MBx2 DDR PC-3200
Samsung Spinpoint 200GB:
ATI Radeon X600XL PCI-Express AIW Video Card
BenQ DVD Burner

it won't even post? try resetting the bios bu taking out the batt and booting it up. does the x600 have a power input on the card to plug in your power supply? try another supply if you got one handy too. something tells me this is power related. let me know
