Proliant 1850R & NVIDIA TNT2 M64 (32 MB) PCI Graphic Card

Hi,

I just bought a used TNT2 card so that I could improve the graphics on my 1850R. The card works as I tested it.

When inserted into the Proliant all I get is a flashing nVidia start-up logo in the top left of the screen, which loops endlessly with a beep in-between. The system does not boot past this point.

I have disabled the on-board card and the BIOS is the latest one.

If this card is not meant to work, is there a list of 1850R compatible cards somewhere? Here are my requirements:
1) it works in the 1850R
2) works under Solaris 10
3) has more than 2MB-4MB of memory so that graphics look decent

Let me know if you need any more info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Wojtek

Have you set switch SW1 S1 to ON = On-board video is disabled.
