    I have a dell Optiplex 260 with onboard Intel Extream graphics and Have recently bought a Geforce fx5200 AGP grahics card
    The instructions tell me to remove my old card , which I obviously cannot do
    I tried putting the card in and got no display at all once windowns started
    I am running XP Pro
    Tried uninstalling the software for the Intel graphics but still no joy
    Any suggestion please
