So windows XP doesnt detect your new hardware. Try these suggestions:
1. Re install by reconnecting it to their respective slots. 2. Check, if the cards connected, supports PLUG and PLAY which means it can be detected automatically if connected to the slots. 3. If it is not plug and play, you have to configure it manually, try to install its software cd.
To see if it is already detected, go to the my computer and check the hardware devices connected menu (I hope you can browse to go to that menu) next, if it is already detected all items listed there must have no question mark on it and X mark.
If you have this mark, it means that the driver is not installed yet or you have to reconfigure it.

Please check inside the computer case if the AGP slot is there, according to the user manual there is no AGP slot and so a AGP card has no connector on the mainboard to be connected to - No it can not be installed to this mainboard.
You can only use PCI Video cards if there is no AGP slot.
If it is a build in Vga with your motherboard, then it can be the vga chipset that gone bad. You can buy a new video card for your motherboard. Depending on your motherboard expansion slots if it supports pci-e pci or agp. You can purchase a cheap video card on ebay, If it is a new motherboard, it may support pci-e, but if it is older it would support AGP.
I have no idea why you would go from an agp to a pci. Agp has like 8x the banwidth of pci.I'll assume the agp slot went bad. If you can get into bios before you lose the display,change the display from agp to "init pci first",save & re-boot. See if that works,then when in windows install the drivers right away. If that doesn't work, during boot at the splash screen, press f8 & select "safe mode" with networking. This should let you get into windows so you can remove the old agp drivers,then re-boot into safe mode again & install the new drivers. Then re-boot normal & you should be ok. If not,that board has a big problem.
hey try the removing cards..... window 7 may took up it best when no such changes are around.. ! Gb or 2 RAm is enough to get run your Win 7 and sound card is noot required untill you have 4 or more speakers
PCI is the older, slower format, PCIe is newer and faster, but your system MUST support PCIe or it won't work. So easy option is to find if your system supports PCIe and then get whichever is suitable.
1 - AGP-Pro 8x
(you can use regular AGP cards in here as well as long as you have the little plastic thing that comes with the mobo... you may even be able to without it)
2 - PCI-X
This is NOT PCI-E.
You CAN use regular PCI cards in a PCI-X slot IF the company that manufactured the card left the space between the little metal contacts... unfortunately, many PCI cards are made with the space filled in with useless plastic... I've heard you can cut the little space yourself and it'll work fine... I don't know why it wouldn't but be careful, and of course do at your own risk.
I currently use a regular PCI network card in this slot because the onboard LAN port only has Win64 bit drivers on the web site and it works just fine.
A PCI-E card will NOT work in this slot.
Generally speaking the PCI-X cards you are going to find are riser cards, network cards, firewire cards, and controler cards.
Check the motherboard user guide for how to reset to default factory settings. If the BIOS is set to work with the on-board only and the on-board VGA is dead the motherboard is supose to detect that and switch to AGP. If is not doing that chances are not only the on-board VGA controller is gone ... the motherboard is gone too.
Try with a PCI video card.
1.Reboot with the AGP or PCI video card installed - assuming the on-board is gone but the motherborad still OK.
2. Press DELETE key
is supose to go in BIOS settings menu.
Browse and Look for on board VGA adapter ENABLE/DISABLE setting or something similar.
first check ur motherboard have builtin VGA or not. If its builtin vga first disabled the builtin and then install ur ATI vga card on ur AGP or PCI slot it will automatically detects and ask u to install the driver for it
