Andy,

If you know the name of your motherboard go to the manufacturers site. Its most likely that this problem would have cropped up before and you will find an appropiate answer.

Not too sure about fire. Computers have many safeguards nowadays. Most likely if it ain't right it just won't work and also if you have to force it your probably doing something wrong or it ain't supposed to fit.

Give me the name of your motherboard and I'll do some hunting round.

I have a user's guide and all it has on it is: Mainboard P4 P4S5A and some form of serial #: EA=000AE619F59D Version:5.1a P/N:40-012-D44516 and that's it.

Good luck Nick.

Andy that should be enough. In fact I think my son has that motherboard in his PC.

Something to get you going.

Although we might need to know exactly which version.

This will be printed on the motherboard somewhere

I've just looked at the Novatech website at the graphics card I was interested in: http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...nov-fx5525&P=1

In the specs it says that it's system requirments are for a AGP2.0 or later. In the motherboard user handbook it says that the 4xAGP slot is a AGP2.0 compliant interface. Is that a result?

On a different note, my DVD player is (excuse pun) playing up. It's not showing in my computer or device manager. Any suggestions?

I honestly can't see why the graphics card won't work. I'm 100 % it will.

With regards the DVd player. Have you knocked a cable loose whilst openeing it up ?

My son has ver 1.5 of that motherboard and I had to upgrade the BIOs to get 8 X AGP. He is running a Nvidia 5600.

Had a good look at the front of the motherboard and can't see any evidence of which version it is. Can't see the back without taking it out. Will ask Novatech on Monday, they will have the info for the system they sold me 4 years ago.


As for the DVD, I've checked everything. When I shut down I'll remove and replace all the connectors.

Thanks for you help Nick.
