Graphics card problems

I am trying to install a 16mb agp graphics card. I am now getting an error code 10 will not start, i have tried everthing i can think of. Any body got any ideas. I am begining to wonder if i have not got enough power to run this as i have only got a 200w power supply which is also running a 60g + 3g hard drives p111 450mz chip + cd + cdrw and 700mg ram. Help please.

whats card did you have in it before

have you got onboard video, if so that needs to be disabled first

i have a matrox 4mb agp which works with no probs, i have uninstalled it before fitting the new one but i just can not get it to run.

have you checked your BIOS settings...? some motherboard BIOS have settings that affect the graphics card.

I have tried reseting the bios several times but without any luck i seem to be going round in circles so time to ask for help

To discount the power supply, pull the power connectors off the HDDS and CDs. BIOS will post without them quite happily. If you don't get the same error, it's not the PSU.

have you installed the drivers for the graphics card

whats is this 16mb graphics card called

this error code 10, i presume this is showing up in device manager

CODE 10 - Device Failed to start.

Update driver, You may also be able to resolve this issue by removing the device in device manager, and going through the Add New Hardware Wizard. or removing it from device manager and then restart windows and hopefully the found new hardware wizard will apear and you should be able to put the installation cd in, and locate the drivers and install
