Hi all,

Running Win2K with an Asus/Nvidia GeForce3 in an Asus P4PE MB and
can't get AGP to work. Installed card, updated MB-BIOS, installed
correct drivers.

Ran diagnostics and found AGP-capabilities not enabled, AGP speed not
set.

Is this a known issue? Shouldn't it be working out of the box?
Asus/Nvidia never answer any email, searched websites for info on
enabling AGP on Win2K, seen several solutions and none of those apply
or work.


Anybody?

Thanks.

Did you install the motherboard drivers (on the Asus site it's called the
Intel Chipset Software Installation) prior to installing the nVidia/Asus
drivers?

Are you overclocking at all? If so, try setting the agp back to Auto in the
BIOS. Apart from that, I can't see why it won't work.

No overclocking, BIOS settings are indeed auto where I thoiught that
would be the best option;-) And I don't see why it shoiuldn't work
either, unless it is actually working but the diagnostic tools can't
figure that out. I used Fresh Diagnose (recent version) )and and some
others I forgot or still try to forget. Recommendations on that part
or am I drifting off-track?

Try SiSoftSandra, I've always found that reliable when it comes to checking
settings. Does DXDiag show that AGP Acceleration is disabled?

What service pack? Would recomend at least SP3 and if you had applied it,
apply it again anyway.

I've never had any trouble getting AGP to work on Win2k... I've run a
GF3 Ti200 and a GF4 Ti4200 on a 1.2GHz P3 and an XP1800+ without any
trouble on that OS.

I've also run a Radeon 9200 on the P3 system, but it wouldn't work until
I disabled AGP 4x in the BIOS.

Well,

That took a while, somethingz came up.

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions, none of them help a lot,
but hey...

Tried SiSoft Sandra and took the liberty to past parts of the info
below. I hope that any of you guru's out there can help;-)

Thanks again,

MBH!
