nVidia Geforce 6600 card displays nothing

Hi,

I installed an nVidia GeForce 6600 card in my Acer Veriton 7200D
machine.
Upon first reboot it worked perfectly. On subsequent reboots/cold
starts
nothing is displayed on the screen - no BIOS messages or anything.

The behaviour is reproducible. If I put the old (GeForce MX420) card
back in and reboot,
then put the new card in and reboot it works fine. However on further
reboots
the new card will not display anything on the screen.

I thought it may have been a BIOS problem. My machine has a sticker
inside
the case stating it is an s82MA board and the existing BIOS reports
it is running BIOS s82MA_r01b1. I am trying to upgrade the BIOS
using s82MA_r01b4, which I obtained from the ACER website.
The Acer flash utility will not install the new BIOS as it claims the
new BIOS does not match my system.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be wrong?

As far as I know "safe mode" is a Windows option. I don't think it
is an operating system problem as the machine is not getting to the
stage of loading the OS. It is not displaying any BIOS message, so
I thought it was a hardware problem possibly with the BIOS.
