    If you have onboard video you may have to change a setting in the BIOS or a jumper on the motherboard. The BIOS needs to be changed from AGP to PCI. What kind of computer is it?

    I figured it out. I didnt connect the monitor to the new card. I'm an *****. It works fine now. Games are running alot faster, however; my desktop looks a little odd. Everything is a little bigger.
