Hello, when going to school I bought some parts for a new computer. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-K8NS that is supposed to support an AGP 8x card. For a graphics card, I purchased a eVGA GeForce 6800, which is supposed to run at 1.5V and be AGP 4x/8x compatible.

However, when I put in my card, the AGP 2.0x warning light comes on the motherboard, and the computer refuses to turn on. If I remove the card, the light goes off and I can power up (but I have no onboard video, so I can't do anything).

What should I do? Thank you for your time.

Have a look through the manual here

There are two notches, one for 2x and one for 4x8x

It may be you have the card making contact with the wrong one
