are you sure that the cards you are putting into the AGP slot are fully inserted into the slot. Also are you sure the monitor that you are displaying to is working correctly? If those two check out try booting into safe mode. The user may have set either the refresh rate to high or the resolution to high or something like that. If going into safe mode does not work try anthing in one of the PCI slots. You may have a proplem with the south bridge.
