Default MOBO and GFX card

I'm a new guy with little comp experience, so don't laugh if this is a stupid question:P

I have this motherboard:
http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERB...51065133.shtml

I know it's older then dirt.

Now, i have a radeon 9700 pro card and just got a Rosewill Radeon 9200SE 64MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card.

The 9700 works fine when i install the card and drivers, but once I reboot I get a black screen and then nothing. The card worked great until i rebooted. Could this be from my older mobo or is it just something I need to change in BIOS?

I just got the 9200se and haven't tried it yet.

Thanks,

From the looks of it the motherboard is older, which means there is probably an older PSU. The PSU might not be powerful enough to push that video card. I would stick with the 9700, it's a better card than 9200se.

Try to borrow a friend's psu that has more watts than your and see what happens.
