I am trying to install the pcie video card listed above and when I start my XP Home SP3 system it does not even get to MOBO screen. If i take it out the system starts perfectly. CAn any one give me an idea as to what might be going on. I have tried the card in 2 other PCs and no probs.
Thanks for your time.

Hi I worked it out....
The PC was starting up, its that I did not realise I had to disconnect the VGA cable from the MOBO VGA and plug, and insert it into the new video card, strait away. I did not realise that the PC would automatically select the new video card!
What fun I've had!!!
