Im kinda new to this so sorry if I dont make much sense but i'll try and see if you can help me out.
I recently bought an Sapphire ATI radeon 9600xt for my computer that is currently running 64mb onboard graphics. I had no trouble installing the card, but once it is placed in the AGP slot the computer will no longer boot. The light and beep sounds dont occur and the monitor indicates that it is going into stand by. I attempted to disable the card through BIOS but there is no option allowing it, only the option to change it from reading PCI to AGP/Onboard. Even following the manual to the finest detail will not work. It seems there is no way to boot the system with the new card in! As soon as the card is removed every thing is swell again.
Now the computer is a Hewlett-Packard pavillion a420a.
AMD Athalon 2800+
512 MB ddr
I know HP comps are difficult to work around but is there any way of easily sorting this out? Because I am absolutly stumped and so are my mates so if any one can help it would be much appreciated.
