PNY FX4000 SDI, AGP - Windows 2000 - Systems KEEPS rebooting...
I have just installed a PNY FX4000 SDI, AGP card into my Windows 2000 PC. Windows loaded fine, just after I installed the card, but after loading the drivers the systems wants to reboot. After rebooting, Windows starts to load BUT then I get a glimpse of the bluescreen of death, again just a glimpse, then the system rebooted - repeatedly. Now, after I've shut down the system completely, the screen is just black-no signal. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

First of all, you have to get a card that is an AGP. These are still out the, search online, that is your best option. Once you order a new card, it's simple, pull out the old video card, carefully. And then once the card is removed, you can carefully put your new one in.
Once you have the card installed physically, you will need to install the drivers for it, when you are in windows. If you card didn't come with a drivers cd, you can go to the manufactors website and find your particular card, download the driver. After its finished downloading, choose to install it, and then follow the instructions provided my the installation.
you need the correct driver for it which you can get from the geforce website. you also need to enter the setup (bios) and make sure it is starting with your video card (pci) instead of the onboard video.
sounds like yo had the same Probles that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the montior cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is runing with your card you can also see that fron the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped

You may need to uninstall your USB port drivers thru the Windows Device Manager and reboot . Windows will see your USB ports when it restarts and reinstall the drivers which will include support for flash drives including Pny flash drives.
If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.
To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.
Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.
If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.
