If you are using an AGP video card, try a PCI card.
I had problems with my Tyan Tiger-133 VIA motherboard and have
actually found it may be a problem with the AGP interface.
I'd love to have a good AGP card that works one day!
I've tried Nvidia cards also with no luck.
Newer AGP cards tend not to work at all with my motherboard.
