This one is a doozy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I bought a nice new GeForce Ti4200 (128) from Prolink. It arrived, I installed, no problem.
The card produced no signal - though it did power up. The monitor remained blank, and the motherboard beeped 4-5 times, signaling a video error. The system then powered itself off.
I replaced the old card (GeForce 2 MX400) and it worked fine - ruling out a AGP slot problem.
I repeated installing the new card 3 times, same result. I assumed the card was dead and set it back.
The manufacturer was wonderful in taking the card back (Prolink is a good company in my book), tested the card - and suprised me by saying that it worked great. They tested it on a Pentium, and it functions well. So they are sending me a new one free of charge. Nice, eh?
Problem is, it will not work on my system as far as I know. Does anyone have any ideas? The motherboard is a VIA based ASUS A7V133 with a Athlon 1.33 Ghz processor on it. Everything still works well with my old card (also a GeForce) so I have no idea what the problem could be.
Thanks for any help you can offer!

resource conflict is what it sounds like to me. is there anything in the next slot?

You mean in the PCI slot under the AGP (next to)?
Nope, nothing. Hrmm. Would it have a problem just with my new AGP card, even though the old one works fine in that slot?
I am boggled.
