Hi
I have been trying to install a PCI express graphics card, everytime the card is inserted, the PC will not POST, there are no beeps. If the card is removed it all works fine. I have tried the card in another PC and it works. It also works in the PC i'm trying to install it to if I remove half of the RAM (4Gb down to 2Gb). I have also flashed the BIOS to the latest version, the mainboard is an Intel D945GTP.
The card is an Nvidia 7600GT made by ASUS.
Has anybody got any ideas?
Any help would be appreciated
Len

A lot of boards don't like having full memory slots and a graphics card. You may have to compromise. Some boards are really fussy about what they'll talk to.
A BIOS update may solve this issue but you've already tried this.
