I think I lost another one
I was changing the HDD in my 400,and got it all up and running,windows installed and installed the drivers for the Creative BAnshee video card,and had to restart,and it never came back on.All the fans,HDD,and CD-ROMs ffire up,but nothing else.
The thing has been acting kinda flaky.I had to change cases,PSU went out,so when you turn it on,it checks memory,and then goes black while it checks the HDD,CD and then the Chipaway screen,and all is normal again.
If I turn on the Power,and hit reset,nothing,and it will take 5-10 minutes to power on again.Worked fine once it was into wondows though.
This is an old AT board,I tried with another vid card with no luck.
ANy suggestions? I made no changes other than installing the drivers for tne video card.

Could be a faulty card - try by elimination - have you on-board video?

tried safe mode?? if its w98se you could boot to dos and do 'scanreg /restore' and try to take it back to before you installed the vid drivers
its a long shot but what about fdisk /mbr?
also you could try a "repair install" or in 98se what we called "installing over the top" by booting from the cd but not formatting"Even a fool is thought to be wise if he is silent"
