You will need to find a driver for the card to operate correctly but if it works at all it should be deteted as some kind of device in Windows. Look in Device Manager for "Unknown" devices. I'd suggest you delete all
your graphics adaptors and unknown devices, reboot and check again. If there is nothing there and no other reference to the video card I'd say your wasting your time.
However if this card occupies your AGP slot presumably you are viewing Windows through another graphics controller in a PCI slot perhaps. There may be some issues regarding two graphics controllers which cause windows to ignore the AGP. I'm getting a little hazy here but check your BIOS for initialization order of graphics adaptors.
