Your AGP card is probably not compliant with the AGP 3.0 spec'd AGP slot on your main board...it's rated for 1.5V (4x) and 0.8V (8x) operation...Your card is probably a AGP 1 or 2 spec card, operating at 3.3V...

See page 2-12 of your manual...
QUOTE
ATTENTION: This motherboard does not support 3.3V AGP cards. Use only 1.5V or 0.80V AGP cards.

Oh, this might help those who are wondering how to determine 1.5 vs 3.3 video cards.
