PC Not booting - Video Card Related

  woodbexhill 15:27 09 Feb 2003

I have a PC Sitting around since I bought my new PC and I now need it to work. Once I bought my new PC I took the Video Card from my old PC and put it in the new one. It is now working fine.

If I go back to my old PC, It obviously has to Video Card. I took the GeForce 2 MX from my Fathers PC, and slotted it into the AGP Port of the old PC.

The Computer turned, on and made one long beep, followed by 2 short beeps.

I then heard some harddisk activity for 20 seconds before the PC switched itself off.

I looked up the Beep code on the Internet and it told me that this combination meant there is a video related problem.

What could this be? The card I am trying works fine without problems in my Dads PC, and the PC I am attempting to get it to work with worked fine before, and there has been no alterations made.

I also forgot to mention, when I turn it on, nothing appears on screen. I just hear the bleeps.

sounds like the card may not be seated properly power down
remove the card reseat it then try rebooting the machine
