When I use only onboard video I am fine, but when I install my AGP card, and try to play any game, the computer instantly restarts. I went into bios:

AGP & P2P Bridge Configuration:

Primary Graphics Adapter: AGP

When I first installed syste, I put card in, and this is when problems ocured, so I removed the card, and now I can go and play games.

Any sugestions?

The card I can verify works since it came out of my old system, I just upgraded yesterday.

Suposed to be compatible, runs at 1.5v and board suports 1.5v and 0.8v signaling.

curious, in devmgmt.msc is the driver recognised, also a lot of these type of caards have their own cds to go with them, have you installed that.
Also, not all cards like all mobo's, one could check up with the card's website.
Also, cards eat ram usage, could you be losing out because of borrow ram demand being too big.

If the above needs explaining I will, good luck then.

I feel silly now, I just put card back in and now everything works fine, perhaps it was loose, but yes I did install the drivers from cd.

Oh well, now everything is cool and I can fully enjoy my system.
