  1. Hello.
    im farly new to computers so bare with me. i just bought a new Radeon 9600 SE AGP card to replace my Geforce Fx 5200 PCI card(manly to play BF2). well i uninstalled my old card and put in my new card. whats weird is that the monitor never turns on it just stays in stand by in boot up. i made sure the card was in locked down. i know i have anothe power supply.
    i dont really know what my mother bord is besides its chipset wich is VIA.

    also when i go to Device Manager under system devices an AGP slot does not appear. what am i doing wrong? i dont have the money to get a new motherbord or card. anyone able to help?

    Did you uninstall the old video driver and install the new one?
