The guy in the shop said the card would work fine in my's a pci card, so I installed it in a pci slot, after deleting and removing old card, but got just multibeeps, no display at had to reinstall old card...I took new card back to shop, the guy said that he could make it work in my pc, but he didnt say how, just that i would have to pay !.....So, what gives? surely a compatible card will work when it's installed, and one does not have to be an expert to install it, so what did i do wrong? it's driving me crazy....... any ideas welcomed
