    chances are, this is without looking so i could be wrong, but you're computer probably has a 300 or 250 watt ps. I'd probably go to some off the wall computer shop and you could pick up a decent 400 watt or higher for less than a hundred bucks. They're pretty easy to install too. If you know anything at all it is easy as pie, otherwise you can probably just dork with it for a second and figure it out.

    Do you hear any beeps when you power on your computer? If not, is your PC speaker plugged in?

    LOL!

    HP fits 128MB PC100MHz to a PC running a 1GHz P3! (which has a FSB of 133MHz).

    Cheap bastards the difference for RAM rated to 133MHz is about $5.

    Found part of the problem

    On GForce4 MX cards
    "At this point it's time for the obligatory warning about the GeForce4 MX version, which, aside from the name and the misleading "4", has nothing in common with the Ti boards. From a technical viewpoint, these cards are still built on pre-GeForce3 technology, and it shows in their performance. They lack both pixel and vertex shaders. All in all, it's fair to say that the GeForce4 MX is nothing more than a modernized GeForce 2 chip with a new memory interface, hardware support for anti aliasing, and a second RAMDAC."
