1.Power down your PC. 2.Locate a rocker-style switch at the back of your PC (if applicable), and switch it from the on position (I) to the off position (O). 3.Find the 3-pin jumper near the power supply, typically labeled "clear cmos" or "reset bios". 4.Remove the jumper from the default position (typically connecting the 1st and 2nd pins). 5.Replace the jumper to connect the 2nd and 3rd pins. 6.Push the power button on the front of your PC once. 7.Wait a minute. 8.Return the jumper to its default position, connecting the 1st and 2nd pins. 9.Move the rocker-style switch at the back of your PC (if applicable), to the on (I) position. 10.Power on your PC with its front power button.
If it doesn't work go to alternate options
1.Locate a rocker-style switch at the back of your PC (if applicable), and switch it from the on position (I) to the off position (O).
2.Remove the CMOS battery. This should be a regular 3V, round, flat watch battery. 3.Wait at least 5 minutes. 4.Reinsert the CMOS battery. 5.Move the rocker-style switch at the back of your PC (if applicable), to the on (I) position. 6.Power on your PC with its front power button.
1.Turn on your computer and press the key on your keyboard to enter the BIOS. This is typically the Del (delete) key. Pre-built systems from major manufacturers may use a function key such as F1, F2, or F10.
2.Go to the last tab or page of your BIOS. 3.Select an option similar to "restore factory settings". 4.Save your changes and confirm your selection if necessary. This will often be combined with the process of exiting a BIOS. Some BIOS types may have this as a separate option such as "F10: Save Changes".

Restart your computer.
When the computer first starts, it
performs the power-on self test (POST). This test checks that all
connected devices are functioning. As part of the POST, the memory is
checked. During the memory test, a message will appear that tells you
how to access the BIOS. For example, you may see the following message
or a similar message that explains how to start the BIOS setup:
PRESS DEL TO ENTER SETUPIn
this example, you must press the DEL key immediately after the memory
test is finished to start the setup process. You may have to press the
key several times to make sure that you access the BIOS setup.
Tip There are other keys that may provide access to the BIOS. They include the following:
If you are not sure how to access the BIOS setup, see the user manual for your computer's motherboard.
for the Set BIOS as Default settings. You can usually use the arrow keys to move through the menus
Hi, Im guessing that your motherboard has an intergrated video card & you installed the 9600 card into the opened AGP slot on the board. If you would have listed the model number of your motherboard I would't have to guess. What you need to do is enter your bios & make a change so your bios loads the AGP slot & not the intergrated video card. How to get into your bios? As soon as you turn on the Pc press the Delete key every two seconds. If your system fails to load the bios than you will need to try some of the others F keys. Let the PC finish loading. Re-start the PC. As it starts up try the F1 key every two seconds. Continue in this manner using these other F keys untill your system boots into the bios. F2, F10 or F12. One will work for you. Once in the bios use your manual if you have one. You are looking for Video display. You want the bios to load the AGP slot first, this will disable the intergrated video automatically. Your Pc will now see your 9600 video card & you will be able to load it's software. If the 9600 uses ATI's software you should update the Radeon software by going to ATI/AMD & update your video software with the latest drivers. Click the link I have posted below to upgrade your Radeon 9600XT card. Good idea to save the link. http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
