    AGP stuck at x 0

    before i recently formatted my pc, i was able to run my agp setting at full 8x. now i can't i have the latest drivers installed on my 9800xt but everytime i try to activate the 8x agp settings ondesktop once i have rebooted it automatically goes back to 0 now smartgaurd says my pc will be unstable. but why is this?? everything is perfectly compatible, i don't have an option in my bios to change it.

    Im running the ASUS crash free BIOS 2 and i cant find the options within the bios to make sure the AGP slot speed is set at x8. Someone has told me to go to Advanced-> chipset -> AGP bridge and that my AGP speed should be displayed there but its not.

    Thanks in advance.

    You say you used to have AGPx8 and now it's 0 so it's got to be a driver problem related to GART(Motherboard driver) and SmartGART (ATI driver)

    What Asus board do you have?
    Have you made sure you have the latest motherboard drivers, video drivers e.t.c.
    https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...ge&folderID=27

    The best thing to do is to remove the ATI drivers and also the Motherboard drivers
    And run this program to clear all the drivers off completely.
    http://www.drivercleaner.net/

    If you have an Nforce motherboard make sure it has GART drivers installed with it, the latest do.
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_winxp_5.10.html

    Also it's best to remove the drivers in safemode and also run driver cleaner there too.

    Install the motherboard drivers first then Direct X 9.0C and then the ATI drivers and then it should be o.k. again.

    Actually the best bet is to reformat again and install the driver in that order i.e. motherboard,directx,videocard.

    Hope this helps you
