Upgrading the graphics card

How do I upgrade from the onboard video to a new graphics card.
I installed a new ATI Radeon 9200 SE 128MB card into the AGP slot, the system does not see it and when trying to install the software for it I get a message saying that there is no hardware that corisponds to the software that I'm installing.

Help Please

You may need to go into the Bios settings and disable on-board graphics for the pc,for it to see the card you have installed,i suggest you look in the manual for your pc,it will show you where to go to do this,

You may have to go into the bios and turn the on board video off. Most computers will do it automatically when you add a card. But for some reason yours might not. When the computer first starts up it will say some thing like hit delete to enter setup. some are f10 some are f12 so watch the screen when you start it and it will tell you what key to hit. Then when you are in bios look for the spot where it has your video devise. It should give you the option to boot from agp. I am not that familiar with that card so check to make sure it dose-nt need a power connector plugged into it. It usually will take a floppy drive one or one that looks like a hard drive power plug. Good luck and let me know if it is still not working.

I already try 2 software as driver file for ATI 9200 SE 128mb.but those can not install for this hardware. pls give proper driver software for that


Have you tried the ones from the ATI site directly:
http://support.amd.com/us/psearch/Pages/psearch.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.27&contentType=GPU+Download+Detail&ostype=Windows+XP+-+Professional%2fHome&keywords=&items=20

ATI is specific and I suggest you first remove all previous installed drivers/software for the card, restart to take effect and then do a proper install with the newest drivers from their website.

Cannot play FIFA09


Uh oh. It looks like you're out of luck.

FIFA 09 PC Requirement (minimum):
Graphics: 6600 Nvidia graphics card or ATI equivalent with support for Pixel Shader 3
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c"

Nvidia 6600 came out at 2004 and it supports DirectX 9.0C (Shader 3 came with 9.0C)
ATI Radeon 9200 came out at 2003 and only support DirectX 8.1 (which support shader 1.2 - 1.4)

Nope, Radeon 9200 will not support Shader 3 (neither will it support 2.0).

Time for a new video card maybe?

I hope this answers your question.
