Couldn't get anything to work on the primary IDE, hooked up CDROM and HD on the secondary. Seemed to work OK. Decided to install a used GF256 DDR card, installed standard PCI video driver, then installed the GF card. Booted OK, didn't seem to recognize the GF card, forgot I didn't install the AGP driver. Popped in the 4.29 4-in-1, froze up screen. Then went blank, then gibberish, blinked once more, then a little sound followed by a bit of a burning smell Pulled the GF card, reinstalled good 'ol PCI video card, nothing. CPU fan, HD, etc all spin up, no video, no beeps. Keyboard lights up for a sec like normal. Pulled the CMOS battery, no help. Jumpered the CLR_PWD, no boot. Any more ideas?

Some days I wonder why I have this hobby....
