I've been trying for the past week to get my emachines computer to pickup my Radeon 9600 graphics card. I tried doing the standard uninstalling of the old drivers of my PCI card, shutting down the computer, and installing the card and wait for the computer to pick it up, but it never did.

There is nothing in the BIOS relating to AGP or even PCI for that matter, and I can't even disable the onboard graphics.


The computer is an E-Machines model W4685
Windows XP Professional

Mainboard : First International Computer, Inc. (VG33)
Chipset : Intel i845GE

Bios : Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Manufacturer : Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Version : IEX423EM

I will post any information that you need about my computer, so just ask. I would appreciate any help! (The information above is taken from a program called PC Wizard 2005)

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. You will need to be able to disable the on board graphics to get this to work. Start by going to emachines web page and look for a bios update for your computer. If emachines does not have a bios update that fixes the problems you identified, you probably won't be able to get that to work.
