Has anyone successfully used a Geforce 6600GT video card
on any Gigabyte motherboards with a SIS648?? chipset ?

I once owned GA SIS648FX and Nvidia 5900 XT it worked flawess.

Dunno bout 6600GT :D 

I noticed need install such as IDE / SIS AGP etc etc from CD ROM came with
Mobo and maybe u need update driver at GIGABYTE :p

Yes, I have heard this one before too.

I see there are drivers on the internet but
I got this problem... I am not sure how to
verify the current chipset drivers in use...
can you tell me how to do this ???
I look in the device manager and can not tell
what to look for because none of the
devices say SIS648 AGP on them ??? :-(

I am still not sure that the guy who built my machine
actually installed anything other than WinXP.

I just cant understand why if one card works well
why any other card that fits that AGP slot will not too.
Anything that fits in the AGP slot should work
if the mfgrs would build things right in the first place.

regards,
gmv

Assuming that your BIOS settings are sensible....

Ignore Gigabyte drivers and just go and get reference drivers for the
chipset and the card.

My guess is that your AGP driver needs updating most of all, so go to SIS
and get a reference driver. They have a chipset identification utility along
with driver downloads here:
http://www.sis.com/support/

Then, if you still have instability, go to the Nvidia website and get
reference detonator drivers.

See where that takes you.

I have a 648 based board, and the AGP bus works fantastically at 8x AGP.
Very stable.

I am however using an ATI based card. It may well be a unique conflict with
your nVidia unit, but unlikely.

Most saliently, amongst others, you need to install the SiS AGP drivers for
your mobo. They should have come on the driver CD you got with your
mobo/system? If it was preinstalled, you can bet your life the lazy p@#$ks
didn't bother, so you probably need other drivers as well.

For your AGP port, look under "system devices" in "device manager" and
scroll down until you see "SiS accelerated graphics port" where you'll find
the drivers listed under "properties" tab for that item.The driver provider
should be listed as SiS and they are WHQL certified.

If you can't find it a listing in system devices or the entry doesn't
represent this, then you haven't got the driver installed which is possibly
and most probably the root cause of your problem. You can download all the
required drivers for your particular mobo/chipset from gigabyte. I'd suggest
you the FAQ and for BIOS updates as well for your particular mobo to see if
there's any mention of the conflict you're experiencing.
