what do the caps on the board look like?

I don't recall any issues like yours being cap related, but ya never know.
There are *almost* no bad BP6s. There are mostly bad caps.

I just got a BP6 a couple days ago, and sort of had a similar problem. Gave me the impression the board was shot.
Anyways. Make sure your 'init display' bios setting is for AGP and not PCI slot. If it's set wrong the board seems to have issues finding your vid card (even if there's only one there).

I'd always have this set to PCI to save hassling around with diagnostic problems.

UNLESS, you actually do have two VGA cards, one VGA and one PCI
if the bios don't find a pci it will boot the vga one fine.
