    Winfast Geforce4 64MB Ti4200 problems

    hi

    i have a Winfast Geforce4 64MB Ti4200

    i brought it from ebuyer when they were cheap (6 months ago)

    well i didnt have a PC with AGP slot in, so i was unable to test it out

    not i have my new

    ABIT NF7-S V2.0 Mobo with
    XP1700 OEM Thoroughbred cores JIUHB DUT3C

    i have decided to put them all together,

    My moniter is blank, i have tried a old 64 meg Savage 2000 card i have here, and that works

    what should i be looking for and doing to get this card to work ?????

    or is it knackered ??????
    My Setup:
    ABIT NF7-S V2.0 Mobo
    XP1700 OEM Thoroughbred cores JIUHB DUT3C O/C'ed 2080mhz from 12.5x166
    Coolermaster XDream HAC-V81 XP2800+

    you 100% sure its seeted properly ?
    Is the fan spinning ?

    Is the other card AGP, if not, can you try it with another AGP card ?
    Have you reset the CMOS when you have installed it ? (you must unplug it from the wall, then leave it for a while in the reset position.

    Just some ideas, other than that, it sounds like its dead :S

    The obvious thing to do would be to try the GF4 in another computer maybe? then you can be 100% sure that it is the card that has a fault. It's pointless going through all the trouble with RMA'ing it if there is nothing wrong

    you have to try the card in another computer to make sure it isw not the abit that is slightly mashed up somehow. they are lots of teeny busg in motherboards.
    if it does not work on two boards, and you have your receipt, you can claim a new card in view that your card is gone before warranty expired.

    I had nothing but EXCELLENT service on my returns!

    Maybe the mobo hates that card! My VIA KT133A chipset despised my Ti4200.....so I sold it

    Well unless it's changed Ebuyer have been known to be have consistently the worst customer support and RMA facilities. Be 100% sure the card is faulty before you bother returning it and I would suggest noting the SN and maybe making a dicrete mark somewhere, just so you don't get the same card back as a 'replacement'. I never bother even looking at Ebuyer any more, they may be cheap but I have no time for disposable products and disgusting support.

    Whenever troubleshooting ensure any o/c's are set back to stock. Another BIG thing to try is to set AGP speed to AGP4x, AGP2x and AGP0x (ie disabled). You can do that with the Savage installed then swap the 4200 in and see if any of those settings will work. If the card doesn't work (you really should try it in another PC) the most likely problem is power. Your mobo is top notch so then fingers would have to point at the PSU. Ideally you want 350W+ from a good brand like Antec or Enermax. If it was heat you should easily POST after a cold start. If it was pure incompatibility I'm definite we would have heard more about it. Also be sure you have the latest mobo BIOS, but rem NF7 v2.0 and the old NF7 use totally diff BIOS files so be sure you get the right one!

    AGP is usually set to AUTO or the highest possible setting (gfx card and mobo together). Best way is to do it in the mobo BIOS (press DEL to enter setup at POST). You should also check the Windows driver settings, Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> SmartGART (usually). Sw such as Sisoft Sandra or 3Dmark03 Advanced should tell you your current AGP speed ... sometimes Windows may over-ride the BIOS setting you see.
