|I doubt you are doing anything wrong if you've been able to get a different AGP card to work okay on the same board.|
There is only one way to test it, and that's by installing it, which you've already done.
All I can think of is that maybe the PSU isn't powerful enough - needs to be 450w minimum with 30 amps on the 12v rail.
If not that, the card is simply faulty (as in "dead").
Never post your email address as we do not provide help by email. if we did, it would be pointless having a forum. All you have done is invite anybody to send you loads of junk mail.
