Default ATI Radeon X1650 Pro 512MB AGP

Hey guys.. I just got this great video card. I opened the box and began installing according to its instructions and when I turn on the comp... BAM.... red and blue lines occur and I can't see anything else. Anyone knows why this is happening?

Here are my specs

Hardware:
P4 2.4 Ghz (FSB 533Mhz)
1GB DDR 333 Ram
PSU 400 WATTS
LG Flateron L1715S 17"
Mobo: Intel D845PESV


Software:
- ATI Catalyst driver 6.12

Note: I hate the latest chipset drivers for Intel already

Please help!! I don't want to spend my Christmas in the cold....

maybe it is dead on arrival. get an rma for it, if the card is definatly the issue. give it a quick check in another PC.

there are only two probabilities, one is that the card has not been installed correctly, and the other is that your cable is loose/damaged. any other possibilities mostly include your card being dead

so I guess there is only 1 possibility here and that is.. I got lucky and the card is dead on arrival? Lol..

cause I'm pretty sure I tripped check to make sure the power cables were in and that the card couldn't go any further into the AGP slot.
