Tyan Tiger MPX (S2466N-4M) Incompatible with ATI Radeon X1550?

February 3, 2013 10:46:50 PM

380w PSU
Tyan Tiger MPX (S2466N-4M), latest BIOS installed
2x AMD Athlon MP 2400+
As well as running 1-3 HDD and a DVD drive.

I'm trying to get an ATI Radeon X1550 to work with this old machine. The AGP slot on the board is AGP 2.0 with 2/4x compatibility.

I don't think it's a power problem-I have gotten the PC to turn on, the graphics card fan starts as well, and there are no error beeps, but there is no image on the screen.

I have tried messing with various BIOS settings to attempt getting the card to work: AGP 4x override mode(2x/4x), AGP fast write override(on/off), as well as trying these values for AGP Drive Strength: FFh,FAh,EAh (auto not available).

Is the hardware simply incompatible? or is there something I'm doing wrong?
