video card only works half the time radeon7000 (ALL MY POINTS Please help)
Posted on 2004-09-30
im having a prob with a new Radeon7000 AGP video card i got for my server. the card only seems to work the first time it is booted. when i first put it in the system it worked no prob. after installing the driver it rebooted. when it rebooted the monitor turn on form power save mode but nothing whent on the screen (not even the post). to make shere it was a card prob i moved the new vid card in to one of my other comps (one with the same mobo ASUS A7V600). the card work ablsoloutly perfect in that comp. i then tryed testing the AGP port on the mobo with a GFX5200 and it works perfecly with that card. (this is driving me crazy) as best as i can tell both the card and the mobo are working just fine.
the old vid card was a 4mb PCI card a RAGE II. if i place that card in the system change a vid card related seting (any vid card setting) in the cmos. and then put the new card in and boot the comp it works perfect till the system is shut down, then it won't boot again.
i've tryed puling out ALL other components (like nic's and modem's everything on the pci and usb ports.
it diden't help.
im completly out of ideas can anyone help.
the system specs are:
Asus A7V600 mobo
