Just got my Radeon 8500 and much to my dismay it won't even post in my HTPC. When I try to boot I get a beep code of one long and three short and about 20 seconds later I get 2 more short beeps but at no point do I see anything on the screen. The PC I'm using is an old Dell PIII 450 XPST because it is quiet and well....it's there. A GeForce 3 runs in there no problem but when I heard that Ati had a fix for the 8500 in the next driver release I decided to purchase it because Radeons are supposed to have better playback than a GeForce card. I've tried everything I can think of, safe mode won't work, can't get into the bios, boot disk won't work, when I say won't work I mean I don't see anything on the screen. I've tried all these things as well with only one stick of ram and the 8500 installed and all other cards removed. This really sucks because I had to put the GeForce 3 back in the Dell and the 8500 in the new PC that I built. The problem is that the video card for DVD is in the game PC and the video card for gaming is in the HTPC. Before anyone suggests using the new PC as a HTPC forget it! It's a P4 1.8A @ 2502MHz with 13 fans in the case that put out 79dB. It's a little on the loud side. Anyway I was hoping that maybe someone has had a similar problem or can offer some other suggestions on what to try. Thanks.
