I can't find specific details of your system at the moment but I believe the following to be true.

Your system came with on board graphics.

The ATI card you have bought is probably an AGP slot card.

Due to the age of your motherboard and the way big manufacturers like to keep costs down your motherboard probably does not contain an AGP slot.

The only alternative is to send back the card you bought and get a PCI one

Chipset graphics = onboard graphics card
AMR slot is for a modem
