The card should be plugged into the black slot, not the red one (The one closest to the processor socket). If you are getting a picture on your monitor, then your mainboard is detecting the graphics card.
If your motherboard has an AGP expansion slot the any AGP video card will work. There are a large range of makes and models with different performances from low end to high performance models. I suggest you Google search for AGP graphics cards and check out the specification and prices. Some computer games require high performance graphics cards and if you are into these games then check out the graphics card requirements for these games.
If it has onboard video it may be a bad video cable or messed up pin on one af the connectors. If it is a installed video card the cable could still be one problem but also try pulling the video card out unplugging the power supply cable from the mother board for about 20 seconds or so. Then reslot the video card into the mother board and plug the power supply back into the mother board and see if that helps. I have also had to take the small flat battery out of mother board for a second or two to make it reset. If you decide to do the battery thing make sure the power supply is unplugged from mother board. Good luck.=)
The motherboard does not have the drivers installed and that is why they are not working. If you have the cd's for them, try booting pc with the cd's already installed. They should have auto-detected them. If you have a schematic of the motherboard, check all jumpers to make sure they are set correctly.
