Ok, now I am really annoyed! What is wrong with these damn things. I have two:
1. 64mb GeForce2 MX 400 (PCI)
2. 32mb TNT2 M64 (AGP)
They both do the same thing: i.e. not work.
Whenever I put one of these cards in, I have the same problem: I get a blinking cursor. Reboot - invitation to go for safe mode yes/no, either way monitor comes up16 colors 640 x 400. And refuses to allow any settings changes. Fantastic. Not.
My local computer shop guy has found the same trouble. We have actually tried it on three different PC's, with a range of different specs ranging from old to very current.
But in the (different) computer shop where I got the first card, when they put it it in their machine, away it goes sweet: so they gave me an exchange 64mb card (which dosen't work either).
Something on the net I looked at briefly this morning said BIOS settings can be implicated in this.
Anyway, I would dearly appreciate any feedback.
