PB AGP with Abit KT7A

Hello,

I've got a big problem while installing my new graphic card :

my PC (equiped with a Abit KT7A mobo), worked perfectly with my old Voodoo5 AGP graphic card.
I installed my new Powercolor All In Wonder 9700pro graphic card, but it doesn't boot : no sound, no image , even no bios !

So I proceed these tests :
- the new 9700pro GC worked perfectly 2 month on an other PC,
- when I plug my old GC, the PC boots fine,
- when I unplugged the disks and CDROM with my new GC, no boot, no bios.
- I have plug the "power-cable" (same as floppy) on the GC
- I have activated AGP x4 in the bios

Before buying this card, I take a look on both specifications (mobo and GC):
My KT7A mobo got a V2 AGP port, compatible x4.
My 9700proAIW GC got a V3 AGP port (x8), compatible x4.

So, it should works, no ?

Someone got an idea , an other test to tell ?
Can someone help me ?

Thanks a lot for your help,
Naurore

You said you have the 4-pin power connector plugged in, so the next most likely cause is a weak power supply.

Thanks for your response.

But as I wrote, I allready unplugged the Hard Disks's and Cd-Rom's supply cables, just to see if I can see the bios boot on the screen :
but when I try to boot, no sound, no bios on the screen !

So my power supply seems not to be the cause of my tricky problem.

Have you an other idea ?

Thanks,
Aurore

Not offhand, but I'm sure someone will chime in with some more advice.

Your graphics card is the pro version, which requires .89 volts. Your mobo probably won't work with it.
