    That info doesnt help at all!!!! I am wondering what agp speed your mobo is as i know that the 9550 is agp x4/x8 (i use one). If your mobo is less than agp x4 then the 9550 wont work!!!

    Is your old card a geforce3 or a geforce4????

    Before you shut down to remove the old card, did you uninstall the old Nvidia graphics driver?

    Near as I can tell your mobo has a Intel 845E chipset and a 2x/4x AGP slot. Your 4x/8x card should work, but some times you run in to incompatibility for unknown reasons. Take it out and put it in again to make sure its in good and tight. If you can, try it in another computer to see if it is defective.
