I have an aopen ax6l mobo (i know it's old) and an inno 3d 64 mb agp video card.  I had an old pci video card and am trying to switch to the agp.  After updating the bios and setting the init display option to agp, I cannot get the mobo to see the new agp card.  It just sees the pci video card even though the agp is selected in the bios.  What could the problem be ?

Does the agp card actually work?  Do you have both cards in at the same time?  If so, try removing the pci card.  Does it see the agp now?  Can you try the agp card on another computer to verify that it works?
Is your timing set correctly for the mobo to work with that agp card?

You must use an interim step of switching your display driver to Standard VGA before uninstallation of the PCI card and prior to installation of the AGP card. Once the AGP card works with the Standard VGA driver, then install the correct driver for the AGP card. T

If it were me, the first thing, depending on your BIOS, is to boot to BIOS, If you have changed from PCI to AGP the BIOS will not see it properly until you set it for the AGP in BIOS.  Before diong so, be sure the dirvers are loaded for the card.

You may want to check your BIOS settings for your default video card (make sure it is set to AGP) and make sure that the AGP driving strength is correct (it'll probably be something low like 1x for that card).

ludikris has left this ludicrous question and gone off the deep end.  Did that make any sense?
