    I ask bc when I hook it up my monitor doesn't come on.
  4. Best answer
    Yes, the motherboard has an AGP card slot.

    Turn the computer off, flip the switch on back to kill the power(but keep grounding), install your new card, attach monitor cable to the new card, turn the computer back on, install video drivers. Done!
  5. Does the card need power from the PSU and if so is it hooked up?
  6. It is a pretty low end GPU, I have not seen any that require power. It is just old equipment, so who knows what condition it is in.
  7. Many cards mid range and up from that time needed 4 pin power like this X1650 PRO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102073

    What is 4 pin power? I'm fairly new at stuff like this
  9. The card would have a connector on it to get power directly from the PSU the one I linked before looks to have a floppy power connector and some have 4 pin molex.

    oh!! This video card doesn't have one of those.
  11. Then that is not the issue, some did some did not.
