:? hello people,

I recently took my herc proph4500 out of my sytem that had super micro mobo 550mhz athlon 256mb mem win 98se and put in my new ecs k7s6a mobo ath 1800 256mb ddr win 98se. now i cant get any games to run. I get a blank screen with a little sound then total lock up. I have to reset box just to reboot. I also put in a new pci ultra133 ide controller card, which i noticed shares the same irq with my herc card, could this be the problem ?? if not i would appreciate any help. the herc card worked great in my older system. i would really like to get it going on my new system.

thanks

In the Device Manager, remove the drivers for both the IDE controller and the video card, then restart and let them be redectected. If that doesn't work, run Windows Update... get all the updates that there are... if it doesn't include new video drivers, then go to the Hercules site and get the newest drivers for your OS.

If that doesn't work, try getting the latest version of DirectX.
