| I have a problem with an XP system.
| Although it has an onboard graphics chip, it refuses to boot normally
| until a graphic cards is placed in the AGP slot. The card is not
| recognized and it continues to work with onboard graphics system.
| Plugging the monitor cable into the AGP slot does not show anything,
| even when it boots the AGP card (which works anyway) does not even show
| up in the Hardware Device manager.
| Has anyone come across this before, I am reluctant to stick a good
| working AGP adapter in the case just to get it to boot normally.
| I don't think the problem has much to do with device driver changes.
| I restored previous images I made with Acronis and the problem remains.
