I have just purchased and setup a new AMD-based Compaq Presario.
Presario SR1000 series
The system, by default, uses an integrated device for ethernet, audio and video. I want to install a GeForce 5200 128mb AGP graphics card, however each time I plug it into the empty AGP slot and connect the monitor, the system shows no picture at all on the monitor. The instructions explain something about setting my bios yet from what I can find when I try to do so (assuming that what I am getting into is indeed my bios settngs), none of the available options look as if it is what I need to alter. I have heard something about disabling connecters on my motherboard as well. However I did not want to proceed with anything until someone could tell me something concrete about what I may or may not need to do to get this graphics card working.
Any help from the pros would greatly be appreciated.
