"Wheee traded my ancient 64mb mx440 for a inbox Forsa FX 5200 128mb. Good card it seems... just agp 8x grr.

Supposedly, agp 8x SHOULD work on agp4x...right? Well it does. It postsfine... so i could use bios n such but then when window sloading comes...the splash screen never pops up. In safemode, it stops at the infamous mup.sys. Now, i tried reinstalling windows...but guess what, it freezes half way :'(

"What do i do people!?"

...as described, cant get into windows with card in. To worsen the deal, i have a working 4mb ati rage pro... but, obviously, downloading nvidia drivers and trying to install em wont work lol ...DANGIT>"

It won't even boot into safe mode?
alot of nvidia cards are not 4x/8x just 8x. It's ether that or the card is no good.
