    Have you put the latest bios on the board? Even if they don't mention a specific fix for pci-e it probably can't hurt.

    Did you uninstall the ati catalyst drivers before putting the new card in? If you didn't then the driver could be getting confused expecting a 9800 agp and locking up. Try booting into safe mode (F8 whilst system is booting), uninstall the driver, reboot and reinstall the ati drivers.

    this may sound stupid but do u need to change jumpers to switch between AGP and PCIe, I know u do to use the upcoming AM2 socket converter on that mobo, just a thought

    No jumpers for AGP -> PCI-E in the manual.

    Try booting into safe mode, then uninstalling the chipset drivers (specifically the GART driver). Then re-install it. Sounds like it's definately driver related.

    If all else fails, a fresh install should do the trick.

    Finally, if you are overclocking, make sure that the PCI-E bus is running at 100.

    I don't think a reinstall of the os is necessary but you should uninstall the graphics driver then restart and let windows detect the card and then install the ATI drivers.

    Shot in the dark: Have you made sure the video card cooling fan is running? It could be overheating and locking up.Also do you have the chipset drivers installed? The latest version is 2.20, get it here.

    BTW.. on your "My System" specs you say you have 1Ghz RAM, I think you mean 1Gb - Ghz is short for Giga-hertz, (a measure of the speed a chip runs at). We'll probably see 1Ghz RAM in mainstream systems one day - DDR2-833 isn't far off...but not yet :-)

    No I just swapped from a AGP to a PCIe and it just worked,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I did delete the Nvidia driver first though.

    Not really sure, but I built my system from scratch and I remember going into the BIOS to select the graphic card slot to PCIe, there are options for AGP and PCI. Make sure this has been done.

    Oh BTW my X800gto is Connect3D. Also not sure if you're card needs additional power as my X800gto needs extra power.

    My Asrock 939Dual sata2 mobo has firmware 1.20, apparently this is most stable but I think newer boards being shipped may come with a higher firmware revision.

    sorry for the vague answers.

    ive done all that , my bios is 1.90
    as for extra power i cant as nothing to connect power too its powercolor
    all i can think of is sending back mobo and spending a lil more and NEVER buying ass-rock products again

    Have you tried the powercolor on another mobo? It might be faulty (esp since your 9800 has been working well)

    Othwise I guess component incompatabilities.

    what PSU do you have? It could be not enough juice for the new card once it begins loading into Windows...just a thought, the X800GTO will draw more than the 9800Pro.

    Did you say you tried re-installing windows? Worth a try, could do it on another hard drive if you have another one available just to confirm it's not windows being funny.

    Have a look over at OCWB forums HERE in the asrock forum and see if theres a fix in there.

    just a thought try disabling FIFO in bios and uninstall the AGP driver in device manager as far as I know it won't be need with a PCI-E card.
