I have just bought a QUADRO XGL900 by NVIDIA (AGP PRO 4x). However this does not seem to work properly (IWILL dp533-s (E7505 chipset) board with dual Xeon 2.4, AGP-Pro and 1Gb of Kingston VALUE RAM) on my PC or any other. Any other G-card seems to work fine on the system except the QUADRO. I was hoping that you'd know how to reset this card. I've tried updating the BIOS on both MotherBoard and Graphic card but nothing has changed.
The problem consists in having letters not appear correctly on the first screen when the PC is turned on (the letters affected are all within 5 columns down the monitor) and then just red or green stripes and an annoying mouse trail of blocky squares in Windows 2000 (I have managed to have a stable but striped system). When I try and install the correct drivers for the Graphics the PC does not even come on any longer (although the hard disk starts off). I have tried the card on a friend's PC and again it did not even show anything on the first boot up sequence!!
If the card was damaged by electric discharges (by me or any previous person handling it), is there a way to reset it so it works?
