Re: Graphic card or MB gone bad?
Hey, before we find out whats going on let me ask some questions:
What socket type motherboard are you using ? you say you have a P4 HT, but what type is it ?
Socket 478 or LGA 775 series ?
Also what type of video slot do you have ? pci, AGP and speed, or probably PCIe x16 or x1 ?
Once we figure out what you have and what you bough we can tell you where you went wrong.
My guess is that you "MIGHT" have the wrong type of video card, last look into checking out your mobo and ram, I guess it being a little bit old will cause some problems.
I have had it happen to me during my previous old builds nothing to be shamed about just need to fix, upgrade or mostly likely rebuild the whole system under a certain budget.
