I have an Inno3D Geforce2 Pro with 32DDR, an ECS K7S5A and 256 DDRAM 2100. Sometimes, when I restart the computer, BIOS shows my memory card having 64 RAM which is wrong , of course. And of course, Windows XP goes crazy then and puts something called "VgaSave" - service instead my videocard.
Do you now the reason why the memory is shown and detected wrong ?

By your Bios, are you talking the AGP apature setting? If that is the case, that is a changable number, and does not represent your cards memory, but how much memory will be set aside to be used for AGP textures from your main memory.

As for the driver, download the latest Detonator drives from NVidia and install them, and they will autodetect your card.

No, not AGP aperture size.......it`s the POST session, during bootup
