    Ok man,Pop that GeForce back in,but you need to look REAL damn close,and make sure its in all the way,look at the contacts make sure that card is bottomed out in that motherboard,your beebs mean no video/video card problem.

    Again I cant stress enough you need to bottom the card in the board all those contacts need to be in the AGP slot,look real close!

    Try to pull all other cards out,and only have GF256 in there,disconnect all drives aswell.

    If all drives and things that are powered are diconnected and it fires up,I say not enough power=power supply,if other cards pulled out and fires up,IRQ or something problem re arrange them,also make sure you didnt bump your ram or some other cards,and dislodged them slightly,basicly checck all connections and bottom all cards out,after pulling them.

    And if possible try card in another agp machine.

    Ok, just the m/b, cpu, mem, +GeForce = 1 long + 3 short beeps. Switch cards....same setup and it posts fine.

    I've heard about T&L. I've been playing Alice w/ the TNT. I can't wait to see it w/the GeForce

    The only time I get the beeps is when the GeForce is in. No matter what I do, it beeps. Unless I put my old TNT back in, then it works fine. I know its something to do w/ the card. But what. Do I have enough power, or is the card dead? Does anyone have any more ideas?

    Sometimes, video cards have a little "foot" next to the AGP connector. In some cases, it has prevented the card from fitting in completely, due to components being placed near the AGP slot. The Dremel tool is usually the first thing AGP cards see after I've tested them.
    Also, something to try is to remove the metal bracket on the card; that has interfered also in some cases.

    Found the problem! No, it still beeps like h#*@ But...now I know why. It has a toasted circut. #C157 to be exact. Not easy to see. Just happened to look right at it when I was putting back on the bracket.

    Thanks to everyone for the help
