Have you checked your BIOS settings in regards to Graphic/AGP controls? If it is NOT set on auto (which will read a AGP or PCI graphics card automatically over the on board) it will always look to the onboard card or known PCI Graphics card for the video output. Check those settings and reboot. Remember to save the bios config prior to changing anything.

You haven't brought up a blue screen error so we must assume you installed the drivers properly. The BIOS control of the AGP and graphics is most likely the problem.

I AM REPLACEING THE VIDEO CARD NEED TO NO WITCH ONE TP DISABLE BEFORE I REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD TO INSTALL THE NEW ONE


Before disabling the video card, restart the computer and enter the BIOS settings. Often there is also a setting in BIOS on newer boards that allows the user to set either a PCI card or AGP card as the primary video device. Make sure this is set to your video card, which in your case would be PCI-E Automatic. Power down the computer, plug the VGI cable into the new graphics card and turn the computer on. You should be up and running in a matter of seconds. If you don't have video, turn the computer off by holding the power button in until the computer shuts down. Remove the new card and return VGI cable to original location. Restart the computer and use the driver installation disk that came with the new card. Install the drivers. Shut down the computer and try again with the new card.
NOTE: With the BIOS settings to PCI-E Automatic, the computer will check if a card is installed in the PCI-E slot before going to the integrated graphics. Do not remove the drivers for the integrated graphics, you may need to reuse it at a later time.

Tip

INSTALLING A VIDEO CARD


Before getting started
  1. Difficulty of installing computer video card should be a 2 out of 5.
  2. Write down important information from the top or bottom of the card such as the Model Number, Serial Number and specifications.
  3. Ensure you are familiar with ESD and its potential dangers.
  4. When physically installing the video card, ensure the computer is powered down and unplugged.
  5. Finally, verify that the computer has an available AGP slot and/or PCI slot for the video card. If you are planning on taking out your previous video card to install the new video card ensure that the slot will be compatible with your video card. Some computer cases have a proprietary AGP slot causing only certain video cards to be compatible with the computer.
Set Jumpers
While today most Video Cards are configured or setup through either software or through Plug-n-Play, if your Video Card has jumpers verify that the jumpers are properly set. The jumpers generally determine the IRQ resource settings.
Additional information about resource settings can be found on our resource page.
Install into Expansion slot
Today, Video cards are capable of connecting into a PCI or AGP slot. Locate an available slot within the computer and gently push the card into the slot until it snaps and holds place. Once the card is in the slot, place a screw into the top of the card to hold the card into position.
Additional information about the computer bus or expansion slots can be found on ourcomputer hardware bus page.
BIOS setup
Once the Video Card has been successfully physically installed into the computer, place the case back onto the computer and connect the keyboard, monitor and power to the computer (we recommend that you do not connect all the cables yet, if problems are experienced you may have to disconnect all the cables again).
If your computer has an on-board video card, determine if the Video card can be disabled through BIOS. Turn the computer back on and as it begins booting, enter BIOS setup. If this option is not present in BIOS we recommend your review documentCH000193.
Additional help and information about the BIOS can be found on our BIOS page.
Software setup
After the card has been installed, your video card should have included software drivers for your operating system.
If the video card did not include drivers or the drivers appear not to work, you can find a listing of drivers on our video card driver page.

Video card upgrading issues


Once the Video card is inserted the motherboard, it automatically selects the video card and at the BIOS settings just select the one with an AGP selection, then boot up the computer. Install the driver that comes with the video card. It might also ask you to restart... just select Ok then its done.

Im trying to install agp...how do i disable the on board vga


Hi there.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

AGP installation problems


If you do see the BIOS post but the screen turns black when your OS is loading, then the AGP-card should be OK. HOWEVER, you do need to uninstall your MB-video drivers before installing a new GPU.

ATI 9600 xt problems


Hi, Im guessing that your motherboard has an intergrated video card & you installed the 9600 card into the opened AGP slot on the board. If you would have listed the model number of your motherboard I would't have to guess. What you need to do is enter your bios & make a change so your bios loads the AGP slot & not the intergrated video card. How to get into your bios? As soon as you turn on the Pc press the Delete key every two seconds. If your system fails to load the bios than you will need to try some of the others F keys. Let the PC finish loading. Re-start the PC. As it starts up try the F1 key every two seconds. Continue in this manner using these other F keys untill your system boots into the bios. F2, F10 or F12. One will work for you. Once in the bios use your manual if you have one. You are looking for Video display. You want the bios to load the AGP slot first, this will disable the intergrated video automatically. Your Pc will now see your 9600 video card & you will be able to load it's software. If the 9600 uses ATI's software you should update the Radeon software by going to ATI/AMD & update your video software with the latest drivers. Click the link I have posted below to upgrade your Radeon 9600XT card. Good idea to save the link.

Fill in the needed information to get to your driver software.

Video card


actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.

1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.)
2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer.
so that you can enter to bios setup.
3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration"
(some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter.
4. Find " primary graphics adapter"
5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci"
If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP"
6. press F10 to save and exit the setup.
7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.

Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.

hope this help.
