I have not been able to add any AGP card to my PC.
My PC is a cube PC so I have been trying to install a "low end" AGP video card without a separate power connector. My only really requires are DirectX 9.x support and a minimum of 128MB (and no power connector)

The card I am currently trying to install is a Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9600Pro with 256MB.

I have also tried a ATI Radeon 9550 with 256MB and a Nvidia card

I have done all of the usual things, such as disabling onboard graphics, removing old video drivers, verified latest chipset drivers are installed, I reviewed the graphic adapter and don't see any conflicts etc.

I wonder if any of the cards I am trying to install will work with my AGP slot.
The manual for this Gigabyte card states "AGP 3.0 Slot or greater is required"
Unfortunately, this requirement wasn't on the Gigabyte or NewEgg web sites or the back of the box. Only in the install manual.

My Motherboard manual states "AGP 1.5v Card is required".

I got great AGP information from I used some of the tools suggested there such as Sandra Lite and other tools to try to determine what version my AGP Slot is. These tools don't seem to clearly state what

My PC is a Small Form Factor PC with 220W Power Supply.
It has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics
gBox P4 Blue CF-986L
Motherboard is a CFI-968L with last bios released (1.04)
Pentium 4 3.06Ghz
80G HD
Chipset is Intel 845GE
Intel Extreme Graphics
Windows XP Home

This is a awesome PC and I really would like to extend the life of it my adding any AGP card that supports DirectX 9.x

Did you install the latest drivers from the AMD (they bought ATI) website?

You can find the latest drivers for Windows XP Home here. After you install the drivers there should be no problem changing your resolution. Regarding the other socket, you must've made it so you extend your desktop onto your "second screen" (ie. the one that connects to the second socket) so you don't see your desktop on that screen but just the extension of your desktop. If you move your mouse all the way to the right you should see it pop up there. You can change it in Display Properties -> Settings -> select screen #2 and deselect the extend desktop onto monitor option.

For windows to work, it needs the card's drivers to display properly. The bios will display, and the beginning of windows load messages will show, but then it switches to the installed display driver. Take the card out, and use the old display method, and load the drivers for the new card. Then set the screen resolution to 800x600 and the shutdown, and install the new card. The bootup should go correctly, and once the new drivers are in, then set the resolution desired.

Defect ASUS V8420 ?

I don't understand, please explain more:

0) What kind of a monitor is it ?

1) If the monitor is NOT plugged into a working video card,
it should blank out or display some sort of a
"NO SYNC" or "NO SIGNAL" or "UNPLUGGED" warning.

The power light may also flash or show a different color.

2) If the monitor is plugged into a working video card,
it should wake up from the inactive power-saving mode
and display the desktop.

3) If the video card is malfunctioning, or if the windows
video settings are set outside of the monitor's sync limits,
the monitor may turn off or display a warning message,
such as:

No sync, Out of range ... etc.

4) The repair situation (3), reboot windows into
safe mode:

a) Press Hardware Reset

b) After the power-on self-test (POST) and memory check
press and hold the F8 Key

c) Select Safe mode

d) Login to windows at low resolution

e) Right-click on the desktop, chose:

Properties -> Settings -> Set the correct resolution, apply
Click advanced -> monitor -> set the correct refresh rate.

Reboot normally

Hope this helps


PS, some monitors have dual inputs: VGA or DVI
make sure the correct input is selected, depending
on your cable (VGA is a 15 pin "D" connector,
DVI is a larger connector with many more FLAT pins)

Also some video cards have multiple outputs, which are
activated only if a correct monitor is attached BEFORE

When i boot my computer nothing happens

You may have ahad a glitch in the system, go into your bios (F2 or DEL)on boot up and and go into the menu pci and peripherals or similair and look down to the primary graphics controller to see if you are able to set it to your agp card from onboard. If so save settings and exit and try again, but theres noting to say that your graphics card isn't faulty.
