I recently got a new ati x700 pro video card for christmas. i followed all the instructions in the manual and replaced my old geforce2 with it. i boot up my computer and everything is going fine. the windows screen comes up with the blue bar moving left to right for a while, then my computer restarts on its own. it does that for a while and then after a few times a new screen comes up with safe mode and return to last working state ect. so i try safe mode and a whole bunch of words go flashing across the screen, it pauses, then restarts into the cycle again.
i got fed up with that and put my old card in. i booted up and the screen stayed black and it gave one long beep followed by two short beeps. (video error im pretty sure)
BTW i read in the manual about updating drivers so an AGP card could run, i figured i already had an AGP card in and didnt need to update. (in order to post on this website i had to fire up my old computer)
