I'm sending this for my brother.
He just got a new system by buying components but his Leadtek Geforce4 A170 DDR video card wont allow his PC to boot. It's beeping and the beep code suggests its a video card failure/monitor cable failure.
The PC system works fine with a PCI card or my AGP Matrox G400.
I've tried his Leadtek Geforce4 card in my machine and it works fine.
I'm thinking it could be one of two things.
1. The video card is not seated properly because the card hanger is not allowing it to be pressed in fully on his motherboard.
2. There is a video card or motherboard BIOS problem.
I downloaded the latest BIOS for his new motherboard, with no change in activity after flashing the board.
I also downloaded the latest bios flash utility for his Leadtek Geforce4. He hasn't flashed his video card yet since he's sceptical about it making any difference.
Any suggestions ?
