Locked

AGP with out windows

By mdavis ·
My GeForce MMX 64MB 4x AGP card will not work, my primary settings in CMOS are AGP 4x but when I put it in and turn on the computer i just get beeps and no video, is there a way to load drivers to c with out windows? Because I think this is why my windows installation is locking up(when i use a pci card). Thanks

Try this and see if it works. Install the old video card. Boot the computer. Go to device manager and remove the video card. Do not shut down. If you loaded a program for the old card, go to add/remove software. Remove it. Shut down, do not reboot. Remove old card, install new card. UNHOOK ribbon cables from Harddrives and CDRoms. Boot the box and set your bios to AGP. Let the system restart. It will give you a harddrive error. This should start the card. Shut down and rehook the ribbon cables. Now reboot. WIndows should find the card and ask you for the drivers.

Paul.

if you get one long beep and two short beeps, you have a faulty graphics card. Not much you can do about that apart from take it back to wherever you got it from.
