Has anyone ever had problems installing a graphics card on a sony vaio before
Not physically putting the card in but getting the card to work?
Does anyone know of any compatability issues?

My reson for asking is I haven't had such good luck with getting my x800 xl to work
When I put the card in the screen stays black I can't get into the bios nothing!
I have tried everything I can think of ...
Trying to get it to work with the onboard chipset enabled and disabled
The bus type is correct so they match up (PCI-express-card and slot)
I get the same result every time the screen staying black and saying no input

The only thing I can think of is the card is bad or for some reason it will not work on a sony
BTW-I have no idea what this means but it is written on the back of the card in a factory stamp - Complies with Canadian Ices-003 Class B
WTF is that is it nothing or someting

I dont think there should be any compatibility issues, I mean they put the pci-e slot there for a reason. And Vaio certainly doesnt make custom cards. Most likely this is just a chance of a bad card, Have you verified the cards volatages are not more than the vaio board can handle, and what about power source. Do you have at least a 350 watt psu? I would also check Vaios website for any know compatiblity issues or faults.
