    attempting to install nvidia mx440 64mb geforce4

    I installed an Nvidia mx440 64mb geforce4 i had laying around, and it
    booted up and ran terrific, ran battlefield vietnam with no hang on
    64pl server. when i attempted to restart the computer, the monitor
    would not wake up.
    upon several tries, i could get it awake and it would subsequently run
    fine. however, any time the system is turned off or restarted, the
    monitor will not wake up, i don't want to leave the system on all
    the time, and would really like to know what is going on with this!

    Any help please?

    problems ever. perhaps that made me overconfident in low-balling the

    any one with similar monitor-coma issues?
