I have just replaced my motherboard and graphics card.
The problem I'm getting is at boot up the screen comes up with thousands of different coloured squares (flashing and blinking).
The pc boots up fine because I hear the post beep check and if I leave it a bit and go on the other pc I can access all the shared files on my PC.
The following is a list of componants.
ECS K8T890-a Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 -3500 processor
Maxtor 120gb hd
phillips 80gb hd
pioneer 107d dvd/cd writer
1gb elixir ram
xfx geforce 6800gt Pci-e (on 81.98 drivers)
all on xp pro
Any help would be appreciated

Start the pc and uninstall the video driver for Intel 915G, shutdown the pc, plug the new card in the PCI-E 16x connector and connect the monitor to it, boot into BIOS and disable the onboard video, boot normally and go to nVidia site and download the latest driver, install the nVidia driver.
HELLO THERE You may want to boot into bios and see if the video display is set to agp or pci and change it from their than save and reboot and if that does not help boot into the safe mode and uninstall the update and if needed reinstall the card,,, geforce has been having a problem with these updates and depending on your operating system it can be non compatable so, please try these solutions ok best regards michael
You should enter Bios setup when restarting and check that it says AGP or PCI for video display. You can then go to Start then Run and type in msconfig. Go through the list for the startup menu and make sure that NVIDIA is displayed with a checkmark. When you installed the new driver, also make sure that you disabled the default VGA driver too. You may have to check that out. If both are running there will be conflict. Any questions, please don't hesitate.
