new graphics card

  matstu 22:28 31 May 2006

have just bought a new graphics card, a sapphire radeon 9250. put it in the pc tonight and installed software. windows recognises it and device manager says it is working but when I plug in the monitor I get my desktop picture and no taskbar and icons. I have disabled the onboard graphics and am going round in circles with this can anybody help?

*I have disabled the onboard graphics*

What did you do to do this?

Check in the BIOS for the line that says "Init Display First" - make sure it's set to AGP - or at least tell us what it's set to, and what the other choices are.
