what happend ???? please help???
As for your other problem, if your AGP driver loaded it's own version of GART then locate the file called ATIGART.EXE and rename it to something like ATIGART.SAV. This will keep it from loading. You can't have two GART drivers running on the same system.
i dont have an option to enable agp 2x in my bios!!!
and i cant find any file called atigart.exe???
I had a quick look at the PC Partner web site and it lists the AGP port as V1.0 which suggests to me the first inplementation of AGP which was 1x only. Your board being a Slot 1 based board, *most* early slot 1 boards were only 1x to my knowledge.
Simple solution upgrade the MB to one that supports 2x or even 4x.
if u looked at the manuel 4 my board u will see thet it supports agp 2x!!!
If you don't have Atigart.exe then don't worry about.
Try downloading a utility called Geforce Tweak from <A HREF="http://www.guru3d.com" target="_new">http://www.guru3d.com</A> and use it to manually set AGP to 1X. If this works then it is likely that AGP 2X is just not stable on your system. If it doesn't work (meaning you can switch to 1X but you still have the same problem) then uninstall the AGP driver and start over again.
As someone else mentioned, if you have AGP v1.0 then AGP 2x may be unstable or it may not work at all. Many motherboards had problems with this.
