I have an Elpina(Alton m573) mb. When I boot, I get no video using either the agp or a pci card that I know is good. I don't get a bunch of beeps either. Drives spin up, p2 processor fan spins up, etc., just no video. Please help!!!! Thanx

Sounds like a bad motherboard. Happens to all of us. You might try swapping the memory too.

Elpina is made by PC CHIPs, in my experience most of their stuff is 2nd rate, poorly documented and poorly supported. If you can possible return it for a different brand I would.
Your problems screams of incorrect CPU voltage or speed settings, or improper ram voltage of speed settings. Try checking all jumpers or whatever is used to setup these settings. If it is a ATX board, and you turn it on and your fans spin and your hard drives make noise, the board is not dead.
I would definately check the voltage/speed settings and try alternates before I gave up.

I have a microstar ms-6534 motherboard and geforce3. I have recently upgraed to windows 2000. I now find that my video card is in PCI mode. I have set the bios to AGP and it makes no difference. Can't find any relevent drivers from microstar. Obvisouly this is hitting my 3d capabilities hard. Any help in this matter would be greatly apprecuiated. ANDY

have you tried to use the nvidia driver from their site? it may be a generic driver, but i have never had an issue with it. latest one is 40.xx for win 2k. the 98 version is 30.xx

Have tried all relevent nvida drivers and nothing seems to work. It still stays in PCI mode. Think it's a motherbooard problem as the grphics card still works and will display in all resiloutions.
