Try a new power supply

Question

Hi, I have an AMD athlon 1GHz processor, asus A7V motherboard, 256 MB ram, Win 98SE. Recently I bought a Geforce4 MX440 64 MB ddr video card, and since I bought it my computer keeps crashing when I'm playing games. Also the computer won't turn on, before I first disconnect the power supply for a couple of minutes and than reconnect it than it wants to start (this happens every time I want to turn it on). 128 MB of the 256 ram I bought when I bought the video card. I've tried ALL the new drivers for the video card. What else could be the problem ?
