Video problems

By bradfieldkevin ·
When we added a agp video card we where unable to get into the bios. The system is a hp vectra vli8. After we removed the agp video card we where able to get into bios. Can you tell us why we where unable to get into bios while using the agp card?

I have just had a similar type of problem with a dxr3 card and a pci ethernet card. The problem was the motherboard was assigning the same irq to both devices and the locking out. The problem was with the bios version. Check your motherboard websitefor a list of conflicts it could be to do with that
