I have a HP Vectra 6.VE/333 (model d6561a) that has a matrox G400 agp graphics card. When I try to start up I only get beeps and no signal. There are two sets of beeps. First one is super quick three beep set where the first beep is a bit longer than the others and there are no pauses in between. The second set is eight beeps which I believe means there is some wrong with the graphics card. I tested the setup with s3 video card and everything works. Although the s3 is a pci card. AMI bios version seems to be 1.16. The HP I believe is from 1998 and the matrox card is from 1999. Now I wonder if the matrox card is dead or could it have something to do with bios or something else?
Ps. I posted another question about the HP setup here: HP Vectra Specs Needed
