Your board has S3 graphics and if you would like to try and find drivers for that this is MSI's link; http://www.msi.com/service/download/
I don't know what version of windows you are running and/or what the exact problem is with your graphics however, to answer your question, Your card will accept AGP 8X, 4X cards and, as long as you have an operational slot open, yes you can use AGP cards. If you have upgraded to Windows 7, you can find cards that have Windows 7 support.
I have checked you motherboard and the graphics card you mention is supported by your board.
See the direct link to the msi website and save it to favourites.
More help? chris
I tried to look up you manual for *********** board but I would have needed the CPU socket and the type cpu either AMD or INTEL.
so I am answering w/o the info. If your motherboard already had an VGA video card Either AGP,PCI or PCIe. on a slot all you have to do is buy the same type of card, plug it in where the old one went, install the sofware that came with it, including the driver.
If you are tryign to install a present card. Go to the manufactors website of that card ,download the software and driver and instal the same. Write back with more details and we can provide more specific directions.
Check the cable connection from the monitor to the computer for bent or damaged pins in the connector. Make sure it's connection is secure.
No problems found there?
try resetting your LCD or CRT monitor. Some CRT's can be degaussed, if yours can - try that.
LCD's, choose factor reset otion if available.
Still no luck?
Right click on the desktop and go to properties, then to settings, then to troubleshoot. Slide the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. Click OK.
If that doesnt solve your problem then you could have a bad video card or Monitor. If your video card is on your motherboard, try installing a PCI or AGP card ( if your system is AGP capable )
If you still have the shaking, you should start shopping for a monitor.
Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory. http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=AGP+ATI+Radeon+X1650+PRO&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title
Since you have able to connect your monitor to the board it means that it has a built in video on the mother board but there's no display on the screen if that's the case there's a possibility that the built in video is not working fine, so I'm suggesting you get a AGP video card because its really better not to use the built in video.
