AGP Problem on A7V8X-X

I recently reformatted my computer and I installed the drivers for my video card ATI 1600 Pro. Everything was working flawlessly every website I would visit would run perfect. Then I decided to upgrade the drivers to the newest ones. Ever since I have done that myspace, and many other websites lag my computer and browser and it was ever since I upgraded the drivers. Is there a way I can update my motherboard to support the video card better? My Bios for the Motherboard is 1013. I tried uninstalling the drives and using Driver Cleaner pro to completely wipe out the ATI drivers and reinstall the new one but it didn't help out at all. Still chopy and sluggish.

VIA KT400 Chipset Driver update fried my ATI Radeon 9550 AGP Card

AGP is a bit old for win7, i'd drop it. that said, if the ati card is an addin perhaps your onboard (via) chip is causing the problem. turn it off in your bios so that the install never even detects it and use drivers from ati.

Graphics cards

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.

This card is 1.5v compatable.
& this is compatable.
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card

First question: Are you sure you have a PCI card?
there are several points here:
Make sure you have the monitor connected to the correct output on your computer. (In this case to the output of the graphics card, not to your onboard output)
If you have a PCI card set bios to PCI
Setting it to AGP means the computer is looking for a graphics card in you AGP-slot on you motherboard.

I cannot help thinking, that you actually have a AGP card in a AGP slot and that you computer is not working on onboard, but on AGP. But you can check which graphics device is used, in display properties (right-click Desktop, Properties, Settings)

Please post some feedback

AGP 8x not supported

Just a thought, but have you tried going into the bios setup and setting bios to system defaults or safe setting, saving and rebooting?
