Question about Tyan Trinity S1590S Motherboard
Resurrecting an old board. works with an old diamond speed star in pci, but if I plug the geforce card in the agp slot after removing the diamond, it won't work. I get little boxes reminiscent of defragging program.
Thanks Philster. The card is a 400. But it turns out it wasn't the card per se. It just took an extraordinarily long time for the system to recognize it. I have a feeling overclocking the cpu had something to do with that. Anyway, it sorted itself out overnight. The whole rig is laughably slow anyway. Now I am going to search for 100 mhz dimms and cross my fingers. It only has a p166mmx in it, although I do have an amd k2-6 500 which I'll probably install now that things seem stable. It just runs scary hot. Bottom line is that I am aiming to get this to run audio studio software and a music jukebox for my sound system. If you have any thoughts on that, I'd welcome them. Thanks again.

You may have zapped the video card. Early boards, as I think this is, used AGP 1x/2x, which was 1.5v or 3.3v. A TNT card, or the old ATI rage type card would work fine. But I believe that all of the GeForce cards were at least AGP 4x, which ran at .8v or 1.5v, and even newer ones were AGP 8x, only .8v.
So that is probably why the Geforce does not work. Hopefully you've not messed up the card or slot, and an older card might work. You should be able to pick one up cheap.
