cant install sound card

  pc mad 16:31 24 Dec 2004

hi i have a mercury mb with amd duron 1.8ghz cpu, the mb has on board graphics and i am trying to install a geforce fx5200 128mb graphics card in the agp slot, i have gone in to the bios and set the primary graphics adapter to use the agp bus, i cant install the display driver for the new graphics card because the card isent recognised as being there, also the display still works on the onboard graphics even when i have set in bios for agp, any ideals please

You may not have inserted the card correctly in the AGP slot. They are often very tight to fit and require quite a firm push to fully seat them.
Make sure all the gold contacts have disappeared in the slot.

Does your card also require a power source from the PSU?

I think you will also have to disable the onboard graphics card in your BIOS settings as well.
