Default Video card works on one MB but not another

the video card is a radeon 9800 pro 128MB DDR with DVI TV
motherboard that it doesn't work on is a A7V8X-X

i tried the video card on an old motherboard and it worked. why wouldn't it work on the other one?

Try another AGP card. Or generally if your card works in one mobo and not in the other there must be something wrong with the other mobo, your card is prolly fine

Is the only thing different the mother boards? If its two different cases than one might not have enough power from the psu to run the 9800 pro. It does require a good amount of power. Check to see what each psu is.
