Are you sure that your new video card is an AGP card and not some other type of  video card, Like PCI, PCIe, etc?

Most mo/boards now have integrated graphics. If you look on the board you will see several empty slots, one of those is a PCIe slot (if you have a newer board) and a video card inserts into that slot. So you need to buy a new video card, install it and install the drivers off the CD that comes with the card. Usually instructions come with the card on how to install, it's not difficult. Before you buy, find out what kind of slots you have and do your homework. If you have a really old board the new cards may not install on it. Here is are several examples of video cards:

How to install Pci-e 16x in a pci slot


Do not put a PCI-e card in a PCI slot. It will not fit and the card won't work. The PCI card has 58 or 60 pins on each side with the slot (62 pins would be present if not for the key notches for alignment). PCIe 16x cards have 32 pins.

There are adapters to put a PCI card in a PCIe 1x slot (will fit any PCIe slot) or a PCIe1x card in a PCI slot. See http://www.amfeltec.com/index.php for a sample of the adapters. For the PCIe 16x cards, you need a new motherboard.

If you are placing a PCI-e 16x card in a PCIe 16x slot or a PCI card in a PCI slot, then open the side of your case. Locate the matching slot (remove the current card) or an empty slot depending on your motherboard. Depending on the case, you may need to remove a screw to remove the old card. Wiggle the card straight up to remove it. If you are putting in a new card, you will need to remove the cover from the slot. (For some larger PCIe 16x cards, you need to remove the adjacent slot cover as well.) Some covers just pull straight up or pry a lever up and then pull; for others, you will need to use a screwdriver to break the cover out. Make sure there is sufficient room near the slot for the card. (You may need to move other cards around.)

Then line up the card so that the back of the card will fit into the opening and the contacts on the bottom of the card are above the center of the slot. Firmly press the card down into the slot without changing the alignment. You may need to wiggle it (press down on the back and front, alternatingly). Then make sure the card is fully seated. Attach the addtional power cord from your power supply, if needed for a PCIe 16x card.

Close your case. Then if this is a new video card, turn on the computer and enter the BIOS (press F1, F2, F10, Esc depending on the machine). Disable the on-board video. Then reboot the computer and load the drivers you need for the card.

I hope this helps.

I'm getting wavy lines on my monitor. When I go into the menu of the monitor itself there's no lines so I'm thinking it's something with the computer itself. Perhaps the video card is going bad?


That's possible. I've had people send monitors in for service because of lines or distortion, but since the lines don't show up when they print they figure it's the monitor's fault. A new video card fixes that. Or the monitor might be at fault.

Test the monitor with another computer. If you don't have more than one, get a friend to bring over a laptop. Except on Macs, the external monitor connector on laptops is a standard VGA type, so you can plug your monitor in. If there are still lines, you'll know it's time for a new monitor or to see about service.

If you need a new video card, make sure you get one that will fit your motherboard. There are different slot types for video cards (PCI slots in older computers, AGP slots in newer ones, and PCI-E in the latest versions). This page can help you figure out which you have if you don't already know. Once you get a replacement card, all you need to do is plug it in to the appropriate slot. The motherboard will detect the new card and start using it. (I'm assuming you'll be installing a card where there wasn't one before. Most consumer computers have integrated video and that's what you're replacing with a plug-in card. If your computer already has a separate video card, obviously you'll just swap the old one for the new one.) Also - this will sound obvious but it's amazing how often it's overlooked - you need to connect your monitor to the video connector on the new card. People sometimes plug their monitors into the integrated video connector out of habit. On some motherboards the integrated video still works when you plug in a new card, but on others the on-board video is disabled. Then you either have the same bad video, or none at all.

With a new video card, your display may look funny when you start Windows the first time. Until you install the drivers that come with the new card, the color depth and resolution settings may not be right. But with the right drivers installed, your display should be back to normal.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Asrock p4i45gv not detecting hd 3650 agp card


Take the new card out and reconnect the monitor to the on-board VGA. Boot up press F2 and enter the bios. Look for resource configuration and set the Primary Graphics Adapter as AGP.
Save and switch off. Disconnect the PC from the mains, fit the new card and attach the monitor cable to the new card.
Make sure to attch a power connecter to the card if it needs it.
Reconnect the PC to the mains switch on and hopefully away you go.

Best of luck.

No video or sound not even from bios


Double check all front panel header connections on mobo.

Check power supply.

Be sure your using compatible memory.

Try resetting the CMOS by shorting the two pins to the right of the battery for at least three seconds.

Check jumpers JL1 and JR1, if both are short, both the front and rear panel audio will work.

Check your video card for compatibility with the AGI slot. The ASrock Graphics Interface only supports specific model AGP cards. What model is your video card?

Does the PC do anything at all when you power it up?

How do i install the asus geforce 8500gt 5189-2509?


1. Turn your computer off.
2. Disconnect the AC power-cord.
3. Remove the side-panel that is *NOT* closest to the keyboard/mouse connectors.
4. Unscrew the spine of the "old" video-card, and remove it.
5. Measure the distance between the "spine" of the video-card and the first of the gold-pins on the connector on the video-card.
6. Compare this distance with the "empty" slots on the motherboard,
to find a match.
7. Insert the new video-card, pushing until it is firmly seated.
If it does not seat, the video-card that you purchased is *NOT* compatible with the slot on the motherboard. Stop, and re-insert the old video-card, and re-assess the situation.

open up the side door before you do anything else. Look for a stick or RAM that looks like the one your going to be putting in. When you find the extra slot that the RAM is going in, your going to find two latches one on each side of the RAM slot. The memory itself is slotted meaning it can only go in one way. Put the memory in and line up the slot with the hold on the bottom of the RAM. It should snap into place and the latches will hold the memory into place.

As far as the video card is concerned, its going to go into a long white slot, it also can only go in one way, the metal part of the card will face the outside of the back of the computer and the card will snap into place. After you do this you might need to have to put a screw into the metal slot of the video card to keep it in place.

At this point you can hook up the monitor to the external video card and the thing you might have to do is install the drivers for the video card when you get into windows. It might not detect the video card properly which is why you might have to intstall the software for it.

Also do the memory first to make sure the computer sees it and boots up. If it does then turn the computer off and then do the video card. That way if there is a any problems it will be easy to figure out where the problem is right away.

No display


Hi st_niclaus,
(Note: ASRock does not list the FX 5500 series AGP graphics card on their web site).
To confirm this please see the VGA supported list at ASRock, click this link:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=775i65gv&s=775&c=VGA
There is an order that should be followed when upgrading from using the onboard video to the AGP card.
Check your bios setting. See Init. Graphic Adapter Priority page 27 & 28 in manual.
Set to: [AGI/PCI/Onboard].
Also see instructions on how to install, AGI slot: on page 17.
AGI = ASRock Graphics Interface.
If your display still does not function after making these changes, it is possible your FX 5500 is not compatible with your board.
(Suggest you buy one from the list provided by ASRock's supported link above).

Good luck st_niclaus!

No signal in PCIe slot 1 With new graphics card


Have you checked how the BIOS is setup to recognize the added video card? You may have to change a setting in there. It could be that it thinks the old card is still there or you may need to uninstall the old cards drivers and then install the new cards drivers after reboot.

Tried To Install New Card, monitor not responding.


Tech is suggesting that you pressed too hard while switching back & forth & may have hurt the motherboard by bending it. This a common problem. I can only suggest that remove your old card & clean the PCI slot with canned air. Carefully reseat the old card pressing evenly downwards till the card is seated. Use a flashlight & check where the card connects to the slot. It should be level across the PCI slot. Do this while the power cord is unpluged from the PC. Plug the power back in & start the PC.
Some video cards require extra power. Your newer card may need a four pin power connector to run. Please check the instructions that came with the RADEON X1300.
