NO, NO, NO... Don't attempt to flash your BIOS. If you're having difficulty installing a videocard, then FLASHING your BIOS is a step above where you're at right now. Too much can go wrong in Flashing that would just add to your problem.
CLEARING YOUR CMOS would be the best thing right now. Use the jumper or pull the CMOS battery out of the MOBO for 5 minutes then reinstall. Now enter the BIOS and edit your BIOS settings as you wish. Then follow these next steps.
Installing videocards is easy, yes, but you need to follow the correct path to get there.
1.) YOU MUST - Uninstall all Display Drivers and other drivers associated with your current videocard.
2.) SHUT DOWN - Install new videocard properly.
3.) Boot to BIOS - Make sure your MOBO is set to AGP not PCI. Configure AGP aperture if needed. Disable onboard video if enabled.
4.) Save > EXIT > Restart. Windows will recognize the new window card > Prompt to install drivers > Install Drivers > Restart
That's the way it's done. If you've done these steps but not in this order, start over from step one and follow these steps.
