can't get video card working

just built this comp, i have 8xAGP on my motherboard, haven't used it yet. When i first started comp, no video at all, so tried my old PCI card, and it worked fine. I installed the card with the CD, still nothing. The computer doesn't seem to register the card being on it at all. So wondering if I need to do some bios stuff, maybe the AGP isn't working, maybe the cards defective... i have no idea. Any ideas? If I had another AGP card i'd simply test that.

any beeps?

I don't believe so....

Is there onboard video you need to turn off?

Shit I was wrong, I still need help

There should be a setting in the bios as to whether you are using agp or pci for video.

Choose accordingly.
