Installing a graphics card on Gigabyte GA-6VXE

A friend of mine asked me to install an extra hard drive in his machine and reinstall the OS from scratch. The hard drive was easy enough and the Windows XP installation went easy. But… There is always a but… The graphics card driver wouldn’t register… It is a GeForce 4 440MX and I downloaded and installed the driver from nVidia several times. The driver installed and didn’t report any problems but XP continued to report the card as a standard VGA and the nVidia control panel didn’t appear. After lots of hours of bashing my head and installing and de-installing and swap graphics card etc I had a brain wave. Maybe the motherboard needed an AGP driver… The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-6VXE and guess what? When I downloaded the motherboard drivers and installed the AGP driver it all worked!!!
