Hi! you don't need to update the driver cause the problem is in your hardware. Graphic seems to be a bit grounded, try cleaning the contact pins of your AGP graphic card with eraser, clean it side by side and then put it back again to an AGP slot, then boot your CPU again. If it still the same, try it in another motherboard that support you graphic card just to be sure before we conclude that its the graphic card has the problem. Anyway if it still under warranty you can claim for a replacement to the store where you bought the graphic card.  Have a nice day!

When I turn on my computer no post or screen to work with why?

it sounds to me that the graphics card is faulty, with graphics cards they generally dont need an initial driver for them to work, they just use the minimal grahics they have so that you can boot your pc, once loaded up with windows then the grahics drivers get installed, in my veiw your best bet is to get hold of another graphics card.

Stupid anoying grahics card problem

Ok, try this.  Uninstall the PCI gfx card drivers and remove the card.  Reboot.  Go to your Device Manager and disable the integrated card, do not worry about uninstalling it. Shutdown the PC, and then insert the PCI card. Also, make sure in the BIOS that you have integrated gfx disabled.  Then if you can boot with monitor plugged into the PCI card you should be able to reinstall the drivers for that card, and everything should work.  If not, please let me know.  Also, if you downloaded the drivers for the PCI card, try downloading them again as it's possible your download was corrupted.

Has anyone ever seen such? This is a screen shot of my wifes HP Laptop. Fresh driver, updated DX, hooked it to a monitor and sent this to a few friends much smarter than me on computers. Lot of trouble shooting by direction but no results yet. Anything would be greatly appreciated.

You must uninstall the drivers of your old card before installing the new card and drivers.
Also make sure the BIOS is set to automatically check what you are using, onboard video (if available) or graphics card.
