    Ok I dunno if I'm just being dense here or what, but my new mobo has no vga port

    Meaning I can't get to bios to switch to agp, cos I can't plug my monitor in

    lil help please?

    MSI support sucks

    you shouldnt need to go into the bios to switch to AGP
    just plug the card in, plug the monitor in, done
    it will give you video, just laggy because of drivers not being installed yet



    -edit- for spelling

    Only reason to switch would be to disable onboard video, witch is not the case here!

    Unless it has onboard video with a dvi port (in which case you need a vga adapter), which I find unlikely, you really need a graphics card

    Not all mobos come with integrated graphics you know.


    If you do have a graphics card, just plug it in

    Ok gcard was in, got it working

    It actually turned out I had'nt quite plugged the mobo power lead in properly, or it got pulled out in shifting stuff about

    Anyhoo, sorted
