    Its my friends system so i don't know much about it. He has an athlon 1.4
    786 sdram
    windows 98
    radeon 9000pro 128ddr
    had BUILT IN VIDEO

    It said in the manual that when u plugged a video card with 4X capabilities that it would change from 2X to 4X...it didn't. Can someone list some ways to change this? I tried the cmos settings and found nothing. I also tried all the ATi software and came up with nothing as well. Anyone ever heard of having to change a jumper for this? or could it be a driver issue or what? ..any ideas I can test would be greatly appreciated. thanx. I will try to obtain the mother board info so i can get more precise help next time if i don't find a fix.

    if the mobo supports 4x agp then you should just get ati control panel and change it to 4x, thats on smartgram(whatever it is) tab.

    The change can be made in the mobo's BIOS.
