If your computer works fine with an onboard video, it is possible that your motherboard is not getting much power. The agp video card gets power from the motherboard. I suggest using a different power supply.
You don't really update the drivers for your monitor. If you want to update your video drivers. I'm guessing because it's a Compaq Presario PC that it uses Integrated Radeon graphics acceleration so to update those drivers go here. Once there you will need to select Integrated Motherboard Graphics in the first block. From there on I will need to know the exact model number of the Compaq PC to proceed.
The motherboard for that unit has Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE Up to 256MB (with 512MB or more system memory)
it should already be setup for you. one way to check is by the following.
Right click on your desktop------>goto properties--->goto settings----->click on advanced----->click on Adaptor
it should say nVidia GeForce 6150se I think or similar and then give a bunch of adaptor information after the adaptor type.
Onboard video is only good for the basic programs out there but your board will also supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards
So either ram upgrades or video card upgrade to switch from onboard video would greatly help but if you are looking for the drivers for it hp/compaq do not have them listed on their website so you would have to do it from the restore startup when the computer starts but that basiclly will just format and re-install the whole operating system.
If you need more info please let me know and I will do my best to help with this issue.
