Today when i removed my AGP card to clean it's fan and tried to start my PC with using integrated card, before PC could boot the picture froze and became distorted. After that I hit the restart button and then it booted normaly. Could it be that it's due to the fact that I didn't change BIOS settings to allow my integrated card to be used or is it that my integrated card is dying?

Are you sure that you CPU has integrated graphics? I can't find anything that says older Pentiums do... I could be totally wrong since I have no experience with those Pentiums, but from a quick Internet search I can't find a listing that says it has integrated.

On some systems that old, you may indeed have to change the bios setting, it may not do it automatically. Then of course you will have a driver issue too, as the driver for your discreete card wont work for the onboard video. You may have to install the generic windows vga driver before you try to boot with the onboard video turned on, which is what this sounds like to me.

Yeah, it has for sure, since I used it before I got the AGP card. I think it's intel 865G integrated graphic card. Here's what's shown on the screen when it won't boot:

Ah gotcha, then I would try what jitpublisher is talking about. Change it in your BIOS and make sure to uninstall your previous GPU drivers as well.
