You have to determine the voltage of the partcular agp slot v the voltage of the agp card and make sure they match. since I know which motherboard you have [if the Biostar M7VIW] all I would have to know is the
tech specs of the particular card you are attempting to use to determine its efficacy.

With the card installed, boot using the PCI card. Right click "My Computer" and then Properties. Under Hardware, click Device Manager. Are there any notifications? Make sure drivers are installed for card, if any.

Free download vga 1996 windows xp


You can download the motherboard drivers from this WEB site.
http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloads.asp?model=M7VIW%20D

BUT
This motherboard does not have an on-board video card.
You must have a video card installed on the AGP or PCI expansion slot.
You can download the video driver from the graphics card manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you this link because you did not provide the make and model of your graphics card.

You need to download the video driver from the video card

I`ve just bought a graphics card and i am struggling to install it in the mother board


hi this sounds like you may have bought the wrong type of graphics card for your motherboard, depending on the age of your motherboard they have changed over from AGP to PCI-e or even ePCI-e now if you have a slot that looks just like a PCI expansion slot at the top on its own away from the other ones, this will indicate a PCI-e or ePCI-e slot, if you have a brown slot at the top of the other ones this will be a AGP slot, just in case you have the right card, for the right slot, there is a locking clip at the end of the AGP slot that you have to pull to one side to put it in check to see if this is the case, then just do that.........hope this helps

if no option to activate pci init first , sorry you can not boot any vga from pci , but only from agp slot.

Pci video card


If you have internal graphics, you need to enter the BIOS and change the vide setting to PCI-E, AGP,Etc.., save and exit the BioS, power off PC, then install video card, make sure all needed power connectors on vide caard are plugged in (some nes cards require a plug from the power supply to be used as well as the power provided from the PCI-E slot)

PCI video slot changed to AGP video slot


First, install the AGP card in the AGP slot. Plug the monitor into the new video card.
Second, power up and press the F2 key to enter Bios.
The system should default to VGA but through the new and only video card available. If this works you will be able to save the settings and exit. It will reboot as normal. When prompted use the cd for that card to load the drivers.
AGP was a short lived concept and aren't that many to chose from.
If you don't get any video at all, the problem may lie in the motherboard and not really repairable.
Good luck.

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
