What is not compatible

Question

First I had no video, but the CPU would boot up. I found out my 3DFX AGP video card went out. So I got a Nividia Asylum 64mb PCI put which is more ram than my old one, but it is a PCI and not AGP. Now it boots up fine, but on my wallpaper the video looks like it is in safe mode (graphics not very clear with alot of gray in it) and I don't have an option higher than 16 bit colors when I go to the monitor settings. I had this set on 24 bit and 1024 on my old card. Also, anything I do, the computer is real slow in doing it like pulling up a window or even closing it. When I load the new drivers for this video card, it can't complete because it says the computer doesn't have any graphics chips. I do not know what that means. Is the new video card not compatible or is there something else wrong?

I had the same problem when I install a new video card After playing with for awhile I found out that it was compatible with my system I think that is your problem.
