Pull the plug after holding the on button right?

No.
Pull out the plug.
Hold "on" button for about 20-30 seconds.
Remove case.
Every 5 minutes or so (if you're spending a bit of time on it) touch a piece of metal (to remove any static electricity that might be building up on your body).
Remember, if you pull on the card and it doesn't come out straight away, check that you've taken out all the screws, locks etc. Once forced my old computer's GPU out and I snapped the board in half. :/

Done and you were a bit hasty back then...
Unfortunately that has changed nothing...

Still not recognising?
Try contacting the guy who sold it to you.
I can't think of any other solution :/

Only other thing you can do is contact AMD or who ever made that particular card and start a RMA video cards are under warrenty for 3 years atleast and that series is barley 3 years old so i would look into replacing it via manufacturer

That should be the proper term for that abriviation but i could be wrong but in any case it is used to report a bad product by manufacturer warrenty

That way it can be replaced with no cost to you if it is damaged and bad

Also your Board if it is AGP there is no way it would have fit in that slot Tottaly different interface

I would assume you are running Pci -e but your problem might be something else

Return Material Authorization, I've usually seem it as.

(It means that the maker has authorized you to return a possibly defective product for inspection.)

If you're getting graphics when the monitor is connected to the graphics card, then the graphic card is working. It sounds like it's running with the generic (VGA) drivers.

AGP cards may be a little dicey with Windows 7. As your PC is from 2004, apparently, a little struggle may be expected. Good luck.

I suppose that you have something other than a 5450 (3450, perhaps?) as I doubt that there's a 5XXX card in AGP.

Have you tried these drivers?
