The page says that it has "Auto detect for AGP 1.0, 2.0,or 3.0 mode". Should this be sufficient to set the right voltage?
And iirc, that doesn't really have anything to do with AGP voltage...
AGP voltage isn't something you can "just set to whatever you want". Motherboards support (only) certain voltages (which are keyed in AGP connector) and AGP cards are compatible with certain voltages (which are keyed to the card edge connector) If the gfx card isn't compatible with any voltage that the motherboard is able to supply, it won't work. According to the standard, the card shouldn't even physically fit.
Complain to the shop where you bought the card, as it obviously isn't what you assumed it to be (according to the physical appearance)
(that of course assuming that it's a voltage problem)
