Apollo Pro 133A chipset/ Geforce 2 incompatible?

Is there a fix for this problem as of yet? I'm runnning Win2k, Tyan Tiger dual P3 733mhz,w/VIA Apollo Pro 133a chipset,AGP4X (2.0 compliant), 512mb pc133(major). Using Guillemot 3D Prophet II Ultra video card. Can't start Win2k in in AGP 4X mode. I tried manual settings for AGP like "CC" and "EA" , to no avail. It does run in 2x mode. Any help is much appreciated! TIA -Lum

  3. This link is to an interesting article. <A HREF="http://www.insanehardware.com/articles.php?i=00003" target="_new">http://www.insanehardware.com/articles.php?i=00003</A>

    The majority of the mainboards listed on this page have VIA Apollo Pro chipsets.

    Whether this is relevant to your current situation, you'll have to check for yourself. But I recall researching this page once before, a few months back, and there were <i>some</i> incompatibility issues with older 440BX/LX/ZX chipsets and VIA Apollo Pro chipsets. That's what this page claims, anyway.
