i had this problem with my new Aopen AK79G mobo.

the drivers supplied on the install disc didnt work.

went to the nvidia site and downloaded the newest driver, this works for all nvidia products
and is backwards compatible.

Please clarify.

Is this AT ALL or just in Windows? Can you get in the BIOS?

Cannot get the screen on at all can't get into bios.
Its as if the agp will not initailize.I have also tried a pci card but still no video.I know the monitor is ok as it works on other machines . Is this a faulty board.

I've got the same board as you and can't say that I've had any problems with it at all but I bought a Gigabyte graphics card to go with the board. Since you've tried various bits of kit to resolve your problem I would be inclined to think that either the memory you have been trying is incompatible with the board, try looking on the Gigabyte website for info on this or and this you've probably already tried but the graphics card may not be seating properly. Make sure you have the speaker wired up to the board to see if there are any beeps this can really help sometimes and check that when you power up that the board is getting power. Good luck.
