Im a new guy here and I have a problem... I have a (Packard Bell Club70 PC), its about 5 years old... it had
63MB SD RAM
Intel 82810 Chipset
ive now upgraded it to
256MB SD RAM
20gig + 30 gig HD
ATI Radeon 9000 PCI 128MB DDR RAM (got last week)
Ive got a problem, an annoying problem... my graphics card doesnt actually work until XP has fully loaded and is on the loggin screen. My Monitor doesnt turn on until XP has fully loaded, it sits there at standby. Which means I cant see my Video card screen, Motherboard info, BIOS, MS DOS... anythin until XP has finished loading... if I get a boot error I have to switch to my primary display device so I can see my boot up screens.
ive tried changing the Display VGA device from onboard to Addon in my BIOS, but when I do, it doesnt boot at all, it just hangs with the HD and power lights on.
dont get me wrong, the graphics cards work ok and great lets me play most of the latest games and thats sayin somthin considerin my crap PC LoL, thats just one really annoying bug I have and would like fixed. It also happened when I was using a Hercules Kyro 4000 PCI
I cant try AGP grapgics cards because my motherboard doesnt have an AGP slot, just 4 PCI's
thanks alot for the help in advance
