    I just purchased a Radeon 9200. I have been using the own board video but it just isn't enough anymore.

    Will I go and put the card in the agp slot, but it does not find it at all, So I can't get it too work.

    Any ideas?

    If it's an AGP card, it will not fit inside of the PCI slot. :hsugh:

    Take out the card, boot up the machine, uninstall all video drivers, then put in the new card. Go to www.ati.com and download the latest drivers for your 9200 and install them. If you still have a problem, look up compatability issues between your chipset and video card, your video card might have been damaged during the installation... or damaged before hand. Contact ATI tech support if you do not get it to work.

    I never edited anything and I never said anything about putting it into the pci slot.

    I figured it out though. I had to play with my bios alittle bit.
