Have you installed XP

What graphics card do you have.

If XP is installed it will use a generic (basic) driver for the card. You should then be able to install the correct driver.

Have you installed the motherboard drivers as well, they are need for the AGP to function correctly.

It's very unlikely that XP will leave you with no graphics. If it can't find the correct drivers it will probably give you a default driver. This will result in something like 600 x 480 pixels, which is enough to work with until you get the correct drivers installed. I'll be surprised if XP can't find a better driver though. I recently installed XP on a computer with an old pci ATI Rage graphics card, and it quite happily installed the correct driver. While you're installing XP, why not treat yourself to a new AGP card. This Gforce2 400MX is a very nice card for a budget system at about £20 click here.
