Friends: I am trying to install a ATI Radeon X300SE PCI express graphics card into a IBM ThinkCentre S51 computer to give me SVIDEO out. After installation, the computer refused to boot up and gave a set of beeps. After browsing a few sites, I was told I had to cover some pins with cellophane tape (from pin 8 through the rest on the larger leg of the card). I did this and now the computer would boot but the card is not recognized at all. I loaded the drivers and updated the BIOS but same result. Has anyone been down this road before? Thanks for any help. Windows XP Pro.
