Hi!

Remove all cards from PCI and ISA slots.
Insert video card only.

Start computer if all goes well, turn off computer and insert next card and start computer, repeat until all cards are in.

If all goes well, you might just have had a loose card, or else you'll find the card causing you trouble.

You must push it well in the side opposed to the metal bar (the side in the middle of the motherboard). Then, you screw the card. Then you push again this side. Then you pull up (as if you wereunplugging it) the card from this same side just a little little. I know it sounds crazy but I came upon this problem too many times! Turn your PC on. If it beeps, push and pull the same side several times. The stability point is difficult to hit. Ialso found an ASP card which needed to be pushed extremely in the AGP slot. This is the dark side of the AGP!

2) The memory could be badly plugged. You said you checked it. So it is more probable that your problem is rather AGP. But in the doubt,remove your memory a
