video card v motherboard conflict

By joergsattler ·
I recently installed a new video card (NVIDIA
GForce 7600 GS) on a ABIT NF7-2SG Motherboard
Everytime the computer has to reboot for whatever reason the bootsequence gets hang up during the beginning if the post sequence.
The only way to fix the problem seems to be a complete powerdown - disconect of the monitor removal and reinstall of the video card.
what is the possible conflict. it has nothing to do with the OS (XP PRO) since it never even gets to the point of reading the bootsector it seems.

But your problem is the Chip Sets on the M'Board and Video Card not working together. The only solution is to change one to another type of Chip Set that works with the other component.

This is something quite common with AMD Chip Sets and not unknown with Intel Chip Sets as well.

MBoard /Video card Conflict

thanks, The problem is not eveidenyt as long as i keep the system running. Since i do not ever shut down exept during necessary reboots for software installation mandated reboots, i guess i'll have to deal with it at those times only, It's a pain but changing either board at this time is not in my budget. Thanks for the clue Joerg
