H/P PC.- Windows xp, intel celeron 4a 2.600mh,
M/B = MSI MS6577.
Graphics = onboard intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE
intel extreme graphics'
memory = 759 MB DDR SDRAM

l bought a NVIDIA, Model 6200A AGPEX 128mb DDR2 Tv OUT DVI
Please can some kind person guide me through this, or at least direct me to a site that will give me a easy to follow guide.

l have to say this will be my second try at doing this as the first time l caused to many problems, blank screne, then just a little multi coloured square, all l did before was put the new card in with the driver installed, then delated the driver for the onboard card.
NOT the way to go is it?.

Thanks Santos, on the fist step of the help site l come to a halt on step 1,
READ THE DOCUMENTATION THAT CAME ALONG WITH YOUR MOTHERBOARD FIRST.
l dont have any documenation to read.
And on looking through the MSI Motherbords on there site my Motherboard is not listed.
So it looks like l can go no further untill l can locate it.
l am still trying.

It's possible your board is an HP *Special* - I've been through all the boards on the MSI site and can't find it. The nearest is an MS 6580. click here

However, I don't think this will be of vital importance - and you can always read the MS 6580 manual first anyway - it will probably be close.

First of all delete/uninstall the onboard drivers.
Then reboot pc into bios(usually F2 or delete key)

Look for a setting to disable the on board graphics.

There may be another to set primary graphics adaptor to AGP
reboot system.

If it asks for a disk to install drivers tehn cancel.
When pc has booted disable any AV programme and run the install programme on the gfx CD that came with the card.
Probably need a further reboot and then done

Got into the Bios, F1, All l can find is,
Under Advanced it says
Plug and play[yes]
Reset ESCD [no]
Onboard Video memory ][8mb]
Primary Video Adapter [PCI]
PS/2 mouse [auto]
Local Bus IDE Adapter [Both]
Not sure what to do now, l dont want to touch anything that l should'nt.

I've a HP Pavillion and only installed a new 256MB Graphics Card yesterday, have you tried simply just adding in the new card, plugging in the monitor and firing up?

Worked for me, surely a new board and BIOS should pick up a new AGP card and disable the onboard automatically.

Spotted something else, but look at the Primary Video Adapter option, see if you can change it to AGP. However, I don't like touching BIOS either, so don't quote me on this one!

Have a good Xmas

it a 128 AGP Nvidia l would like to replace it with, l did try to install it before doing as you say but by uninsralling the onboard graphics driver.
it worked for a while but then the screen reduced to a 1 inch square and then cut out it did that every time l rebooted the pc, finally l took the new card out did a roll back to a time when it all worked ok but that caused other problem as well, but it is working ok now.
But l would like to try again.
But not before l feel we have it right.
Thanks to all for your help Guys.
