Ok.
So I just bought this thing, and the instructions say you need to just power down
unplug the old card.
Plug in the new card, attach power to it, and reboot.

However, when I do this, I head 4 beeps from the bios and nothing comes up.

How can I fix this?
Whats the issue?

according to this: http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml you may have a memory problem with your graphics card. It sounds like your old card works, as you've just bought this card, I'd take it back from where you bought it.

what size is the power supply in the system? possible thats its not big enough for the x1300. from the info i found on the x1300 512mb agp edotion it requires at least a 420watt psu, maybe higher depending on what other hardware you have in the system.
