    dude did you chk your bios... if the onboard agp is active... if it is switch to your graphics card...and chk it again... also connect your graphics card to your monitor.. i think you`ve already done that..

    Check all connections properly and whether your SMPS is able to provide sufficient power to the gfx card.

    I also have the same graphics card and i couldnt install it easily. CHeck your Bios. See if the AGP graphics is enabled. There will be an option for AGP aperture size or somethin. Set that to 64mb. Choose AGP as primary display device. Then go to windows and install the nVidia drivers on both windows and then set the resolution and colour and other options.
