Default fitting new graphics card ??

I am fitting a new agp graphics card to my friends pc.
After fitting it I tried everything I could think of to get it working but the pc did not pick the card up.
The motherboard has onboard graphics, so I went to the bios and changed the relevent inputs to agp, plugged the monitor into the card but it still would not pick it up. I have been told there are no jumpers to change on the board. I am not a great 'techy' so please be easy on me! This is the only info I have on the motherboard:-

MOTHERBOARD NAME: MATSONIC MS8157E

MOTHERBOARD PHYSICAL INFO:
CPU SOCKETS: 1
EXPANSION SLOTS: 5 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 CNR
RAM SLOTS: 4 DIMM
INTEGRATED DEVICES: AUDIO, VIDEO, LAN
FORM FACTOR: ATX
SIZE: 220MM X 300MM
CHIPSET: KM266

I am at a loss as to what to do, or if I am missing something, I have been to the Matsonic site and cant find a manual for the board, I would not understand it too well anyway!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
THANX
