I fixed that but everytime I try and do anything the computer freezes. I tried posting this last night but after trying 3 times and having the puter freeze on me I gave up. I think I may have a conflict. I tried researching this but didn't get very far due to the freezing (about 10 times in half an hour). I finally removed the card which is why I am able to post this. Could anyone advise me on what I should due. Would a bios update help me? I tried to update the drivers in the new card but again it would just freeze up.
Sounds like a resource conflict, did you ever disable the onboad video card in BIOS? Maybe a BIOS update might help but try disabling onboard video in BIOS.
The step is to uninstall it in Windows, reboot, go into BIOS, disable the onboard video, set AGP as primary video controller, save and exit, then power it down holding the power button. Install your AGP card, power up, go into Windows, try and get the latest driver if you could.
