I have a P4VXASD motherboard that I am currently using a AGP TNT2-VANTA graphics card, and it works fine with low end games and graphics. I wanted play higher end games such as LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones, so I found a used e-GeForce 6200LE, 256Mb DDR2 graphics card and installed it. The monitor would not receive any data, it seemed that the pc would not boot, or basically not work with this graphics card. So I thought that the card was just bad.
Today I found a supposedly new and unused Diamond Stealth S85, 128 Mb DDR graphics card new in box, and it is doing the same thing. Is there something that I need to configure on the motherboard to used these cards or are these just to much card for this motherboard?
As I wrote, I could not get the pc to communicate with the monitor, the monitor was acting like it could not receive the data, so I could not get into the BIOS or anything. Thanks for any advice. Daljaxon

The Intel motherboard D101GGC does not have an AGP video slot on-board. It does however have one PCI-Express x16 slot for faster graphics.
Open manual to page 11. Desktop Board Components. See item D on page 11 and page 12. If you need the manual you can download it from Intel. Open the link provided; http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-021718.htm

PCI-Express video cards;
XFX is one of the few companies that warrant their cards for life.
Your new Foxconn motherboard Primary Graphics Adapter settings in set to onboard vga that is why there is no display in your monitor. Do not install yet your agp video card. Use first the onboard vga of the motherboard. Power up your computer and go to the BIOS settings. Locate in bios about the Primary Graphics Adapter settings and then select AGP. Save changes and the exit. Turn off your computer and now install the agp video card.
Try the following : Go into the setup routine using the onboard video. Go to the Intergrated Peripherals. Find the onboard video and change it to disable. Save changes. Change monitor to the AGP card. I hope this helps.
Your motherboard only supports AGP. You can use any AGP graphics card that supports up to 4X AGP. nVidia and ATI make great cards as well as other manufacturers that mak boards using nVidia and ATI chipsets. I would recomend a card with at least 512MB of memory onboard. I hope this helps.
That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.
nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.
I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.
Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.
First question: Are you sure you have a PCI card? there are several points here: Make sure you have the monitor connected to the correct output on your computer. (In this case to the output of the graphics card, not to your onboard output) If you have a PCI card set bios to PCI Setting it to AGP means the computer is looking for a graphics card in you AGP-slot on you motherboard.
I cannot help thinking, that you actually have a AGP card in a AGP slot and that you computer is not working on onboard, but on AGP. But you can check which graphics device is used, in display properties (right-click Desktop, Properties, Settings)
