Re: onboard graphic (vga) chip problem

You never said that you ininstalled the drivers for the cards. Try this:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.

Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.
Let me know how you make out.

When installing this card it has 26 pin conector at the top where do you connect on the mother board or somewhere else . The motherboard is an ASUS 3PV 4X


Onboard you have 6 white connectors, those are PCI connectors, you also have ONE BROWN connector, thats the VGA connector

You connect your vga-card on that brown connector (if it fits)

Good luck
