I just completed building my computer but i'mhaving some problems with it. I can't play any games because my mobo doesn't seem to recognize my graphic card.

I went to DirectX Diagnostic Tool and then to Display tab.
Manufacturer: N/A
Chip Type: N/A
DAC Type: N/A
Approx. Total Memory: N/A

Main Driver: vga.dll
Version: 5.01.2600.0000 (English)
Date: 12/2/2004
WHQL Logo'd: Yes
Mini VDD: vga.sys
DDI Version: unknown

The system is using the generic video driver. Please install video driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.
DirectDraw test results: All tests were successful.
Direct3D functionality not available. You should verify that the driver is a final version from the hardware manufacturer.

The things is, i have an ATI Radeon 9550 128mb AGP graphic card hooked onto the mobo. I am clueless on what to do.

go to the site of your graphics card maker, download the driver for the it

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste this in slot: devmgmt.msc
- press: enter
- see if there is a yellow blob on the icon of video driver
(means driver is missing)
- if yes, right hand click, choose uninstall
- top of wiindow, choose: action
- click: search for new material
- browse to the driver you downloaded from site
- press: enter
