Hi i've got a problem, I recently bought a XFX Geforce 6600GT AGP but it wont work! When i hook it up my computer wont even turn on, then after like 30 seconds I get all these funky colours on my moniter. But everything is running even the video card is running, I also have extra power hooked up to the card. I replaced my old power supply today with a 430W Thermaltake with 18A through the 12V. My old card (9200 Pro works fing through it). I also tried taking out half the ram of my motherboard cause I heard that that sometimes works too, but it didn't work. Here are my system specs... Thanks!

Obvious I guess, but it is possible you have a faulty card, test it in a different PC if possible.

Try NividiaDude's Idea, but if that doesn't work get the latest drivers for your new video card.

Also, mentalguitar, the most common problem with people upgrading from an old video card to a more recent one is that they neglect the fact that there may be an extra 4-pin connector you need to plug into the video card from your PSU. Did you do that?

Ya I added extra power, I took it in to the local store and he pointed out the problem right away. The fan got backed up by dust - was spinning but not really cooling the chip. So mabey fryed, I dunno he's gonna get back to me. Thanx!
