Hi, I have problems with my computer, the problem is my MSI G33M motherboard (I think) I just bought an XFX 8600GT which I installed today. once I set everything up and turned on my computer nothing loaded. Not windows XP (my OS) or anything. I could also not go into BIOS. So, I removed the 8600GT and trying turning it on again, the same thing happened. I tried several other things, and double/triple checked all the components. RAM was properly installed, all the wires were tucked away, CPU looked fine, all the fans worked, all the lights were on. Seemed fine, I had also just cleaned it... So the problem is most likely the motherboard or power supply (maybe it's doesn't provide enough power) it's only 420W total. It's a mystery why it isn't working. If you have any ideas why it isn't working please tell me ASAP! I have already asked some people and they are clueless.

This might help, here's my PC specs:

-MSI G33M Motherboard (1333FSB, supports 45nm CPU - Core 2 duo, Quad - supports one 16x PCI express slot)
-Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2.0 GHz
-1GB DDR2 RAM @ 800MHz
-420W Power Supply
-160 GB HDD @ 7200RPM
-Windows XP Home Edition SP2
-XFX 8600GT 256MB

remember this configuration worked before (without the 8600) but now nothing loads when I boot it up, and when I changed it back to the old configuration it still doesn't load up.


I really would like to hear from you, thanks in advance.

Don't tell us how you fixed it! I mean, why would we want to know? It's not as if it could happen to us or anything.

sorry, I just reset the CMOS jumper then i figured out i forgot to un install one last driver thing on my hard drive so i uninstalled it, then I set the BIOS back from Internal graphics to PCI then I installed everything and it worked.
