    Alright, I joined up to get some advice from you guys. I ordered my shuttle from newegg, it worked fine when I first got it, then I tried to put a videocard in it, I can't deal with onboard video. At first I borrowed my friend's geforce 4 ti 4200. It worked, but it got so hot that it immediately had artifacts, and I just didn't want to deal with that, plus, I don't want to run an nvidia based card. About a week later my shuttle's onboard video went out, so I RMA'd it. Now I have my new shuttle, I tried to run a Radeon 8500 in it at first, it corrupted windows when I tried to boot with it in. I then tried my Radeon 9700 pro, and it had the same results. I don't know what to do, seems like my Shuttle hates the AGP slot filled with something ATI based. I'll try my Radeon 9200 when I get it on Monday, but other than that, what can I try? I don't think another RMA would do much except burn $15.

    Here is what I am running

    Athlon XP 2500+ Barton
    512(2x256) MB Corsair XMS3200 TwinX™
    Western Digital 80 gb hdd w/8 mb cache
    Lite On 48x24x48 cd-rw/dvd rom
    And a whole slew of video cards I've tried
    Radeon 8500 pro
    Radeon 9700 pro
    Radeon 9200 (on monday)
    Geforce 4 TI 4200

    The problem with the Geforce 4 TI 4200 is odd considering i'm running mine with the 7v and it still runs beautifully. No special heatsink either.
    What i suggest is going over to the sudhian.com forums as there a lot of shuttle users there who could answer your questions.
    I feel bad for referring :duh:

    Meh, nevermind.

    I cleared the CMOS today and reset the battery and then installed xp, then installed the 9200, and it works.. fine. Weird.
