nvidia fx5500 pci not working on via technologies vt8363 system

I have an older system: 1.2Ghz AMD, 640MB, winxp professional.

The system has an AGP slot in which resides an older nvidia adapter: GeForce2 MX 100/200 32MB. The entire system works just fine.

I have come into the possesion of a newer GeForce FX550 PCI 128MB card and am trying to install it and stop using the current AGP card.

When I install the card in an available PCI slot, the card is not even recognized by the OS. I have tried muliple slots just in case it was a seating problem with a slot. I assume there is an issue with the integration of the card with the motherboard (Via Tech vt8363) but am unsure as to what settings to change.

Any help would be greatly appreciated....

you may need to look in your mobo manual what AGP types it supports :AGP, X2, X4, or X8
but it can be bad , as said

Why would the types of AGP that are supported affect the use of the PCI card? Don't have another system handy to try it in.
